           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On April 5, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely petition  for
        administrative  review  of  an  order  issued  on  March  1,   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 August 29, 1990, the tenant commenced this proceeding by filing a 
        complaint asserting that the owner had failed  to  maintain  certain
        services in the subject premises.

        In its answer  dated  September  27,  1990,  the  owner  denied  the
        allegations  set  forth  in  the  tenant's  complaint  or  otherwise
        asserted that all required repairs had  been  completed;  and  "that
        there is no decrease in any type of service."

        Thereafter on  January  31,  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 1, 1991, the Rent  Administrator  directed  restoration  of
        these  services  and  further  ordered  a  reduction  of  the  legal
        regulated rent.

        In its petition for administrative  review,  the  owner  states,  in
        substance, that repairs were performed.  The owner submitted a  work
        order dated November 26, 1990 signed by the tenant.

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

        Despite the owner's contention of a "work order," inspection of  the
        subject premises disclosed a  decrease  in  services,  warranting  a
        reduction.

        This order is issued without prejudice to the owner's right to  file
        an application for restoration of services.

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






          Docket Number: FD-510064-RO
        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
