           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On April 9, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely Petition  for
        Administrative  Review  of  an  order  issued  on  March  4,   1991,
        concerning t e  housing  accommodations  relating  to   the   above-
        described docket number.  

        The Commissioner has reviewed all the evidence in the record and has 
        carefully considered that portion of  the  record  relevant  to  the
        issues raised by the petition.

        On November 13, 1990, the  tenant   commenced  this  proceeding   by
        filing a complaint asserting that the owner had failed  to  maintain
        certain services in the subject apartment including, but not limited 
        to, problems with the toilet and bathroom.

        In its answer filed on December 18, 1990, the  owner  asserted  that
        all required repairs had been completed as of December 14, 1990.

        Thereafter on February  20,  1991,  an  inspection  of  the  subject
        apartment was conducted  by  a  DHCR  inspector  who  confirmed  the
        existence of defective conditions.

        On March 4, 1991, the Administrator directed  restoration  of  these
        services and further ordered a reduction of the stabilization rent.

        In this petition, the owner states in substance  that  repairs  were
        performed as of December 14, 1990; and  that  the  problems  in  the
        toilet and bathroom were not in the tenant's original complaint.

        The record clearly shows that the tenant  originally  complained  of
        problems in the toilet and bathroom.  The  Commissioner  thus  finds
        the owner's contention otherwise without merit.

        Although the owner contends that repairs were effectuated  prior  to
        the issuance of the Administrator's order,  the  Commissioner  notes
        that the owner submitted no evidence to substantiate the  contention







          Docket Number: FD-110034-RO
        either while the proceeding was pending before the Administrator  or
        by  attachment  to  his   petition.    Accordingly,   based   on   a
        preponderance of the evidence, the owner  has  offered  insufficient
        reason to disturb  the  Administrator's  order,  and  it  should  be
        affirmed.

        THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law  and  Code,
        it is

        ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied,  and
        that the District  Rent  Administrator's  order  be,  and  the  same
        hereby is, affirmed.

        ISSUED:




                                                                      
                                        ELLIOT SANDER
                                        Deputy Commissioner
