           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On April 15, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely petition for 
        administrative  review  of  an  order  issued  on  March  27,  1991,
        concerning t e  housing  accommodations  relating  to   the   above-
        described docket number.  

        This administrative appeal  is  being  determined  pursuant  to  the
        provisions of 2520.6(r) and 2523.4 of the Rent Stabilization Code.

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

        On July 12, 1990, the owner commenced this proceeding by  filing  an
        application to restore rent based on the restoration of services.

        On August 29, 1990, the  tenant  filed  an  answer  to  the  owner's
        application,  stating  in  substance  that  services  had  not  been
        restored.

        Thereafter on February  21,  1991,  an  inspection  of  the  subject
        apartment was conducted by a D.H.C.R. inspector  who  confirmed  the
        existence of defective conditions.

        On March 27, 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  had
        been performed because the tenant signed the applications' "Tenant's 
        Statement of Consent."

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







          Docket Number: FD-420126-RO

        The record shows  that  the  tenant  signed  on  July  6,  1990  the
        "Tenant's  Statement  of  Consent"  in  the   owner's   application.
        However, in this statement, the tenant merely  acknowledged  reading
        the owner's application to restore rent based on the restoration  of
        services and consenting to same.  Furthermore, a February  21,  1991
        inspection of the subject apartment disclosed defective  conditions,
        warranting rent reduction. 

        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
