                                            :  
             LUIS RAMOS,                       DISTRICT RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
                                               DOCKET NO.: DI 210752-S   
                              PETITIONER    : 
        ------------------------------------X                           
          
           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On April 24, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely petition for 
        administrative  review  of  an  order  issued  on  March  18,   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 September 25, 1989,  the  tenant  commenced  this  proceeding  by
        filing a complaint asserting that the owner had failed  to  maintain
        certain services in the subject apartment.

        Although duly notified to do so  on  October  27,  1989,  the  owner
        failed to respond to the tenant's complaint.

        Thereafter on September 27, 1990 and March 1, 1991,  inspections  of
        the subject apartment were conducted by  a  D.H.C.R.  inspector  who
        confirmed the existence of defective conditions.

        The Rent Administrator directed on March  18,  1991  restoration  of
        these services and further ordered a reduction of the  stabilization
        rent.

        In its petition for administrative  review,  the  owner  states,  in
        substance, that repairs have been performed on March 28, 1991.

        After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion that 
        the petition should be denied.

        The owner clearly admits on  its  petition  tha  repairs  were  made
        following the issuance of  the  Administrator's  order.   Thus,  the
        Administrator's order reducing the rent was correct when issued, and 
        this Order and Opinion is issued  without  prejudice  to  the  owner
        filing an application for restoration of services.








        Adm. Review Docket Number: FD 210230-RO
        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
