           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        On May 14, 1991, the above-named owner filed a timely  petition  for
        administrative  review  of  an  order  issued  on  April  11,   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 owner commenced this proceeding on May 25,  1990  by  filing  an
        application to restore rent based on the restoration of services.

        Although the tenant was mailed a copy of the owner's application  on
        June 13, 1990 and notified to do so, the tenant failed to respond.

        Thereafter on February 12, 1991, an inspection was  conducted  by  a
        D.H.C.R.  inspector  who  confirmed  the  continued   existence   of
        defective conditions.

        The Administrator denied on April 11, 1991 the owner's  request  for
        rent restoration and continued the rent reduction in effect.

        In this petition, the owner contends in substance that an  affidavit
        from the managing agent on February 21,  1990  showed  that  repairs
        have been performed; that a June 18, 1990  letter  from  the  DHCR's
        Compliance Bureau indicated that the case is closed.

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

        The owner's petition alleges that repairs  were  made  as  early  as
        February 21,  1990,  before  the  owner's  application,  before  the
        apartment was inspected or the  order  was  issued.   However,  this
        allegation is belied by the report of the agency inspector.

        It is noted that the June 18, 1990 letter from the DHCR's Compliance 
        Bureau merely directs the owner to apply for  rent  restoration  and
        does  not  negate  the  inspection  pursuant  to  rent   restoration
        procedure.


        THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent & and  Eviction  Regulations,







        Adm. Review Docket No: FE 420168-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
