        APPEAL OF                              DOCKET NO.: FE 210184-RO 
                                            :  
             COOPER AND HOFFMAN REALTY CO.,    DISTRICT RENT ADMINISTRATOR'S
                                               DOCKET NO.: EL 210377-S  
                              PETITIONER    : 
        ------------------------------------X                           
          
           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On May 15, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely  petition  for
        administrative  review  of  an  order  issued  on  April  23,   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.

        The tenant commenced this proceeding on December 21, 1990 by  filing
        a complaint asserting that the owner had failed to maintain  certain
        services in the subject apartment.

        In its answer filed on January 23, 1991, the owner asserted that all 
        required repairs had been or will be completed.

        Thereafter on March 19, 1991, an inspection of the subject apartment 
        was conducted by a D.H.C.R. inspector who confirmed the existence of 
        defective conditions.

        The Administrator directed restoration of these  services  on  April
        23, 1991 and further ordered a reduction of the stabilized rent.

        In this petition, the owner states in substance  that  repairs  have
        been performed.

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

        The owner's petition does not make clear whether it is  the  owner's
        contention that repairs had  been  made  before  the  apartment  was
        inspected or the order was issued, or whether the contention is that 
        repairs were made following  the  issuance  of  the  Administrator's
        order.  If it is the former, then the owner's allegation  is  belied
        by the report of the agency inspector.  If it is the latter, then 
        the Administrator's order reducing the rent was nevertheless correct 
        when issued, and this order is issued without prejudice to the owner 
        filing an application for restoration of services.

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








        Adm. Rev. Docket No: FE 210184-RO
        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
