           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

        The above-named owner filed a  timely  petition  for  administrative
        review of an order issued on February 4, 1991 concerning the 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 July 5, 1990, the owner filed  an  application  to  restore  rent
        based on the restoration of services.

        The tenants opposed this application by denying the allegations  set
        forth  in  the  owner's  application  or  otherwise  asserting  that
        required services had not been restored.

        Thereafter on December  20,  1990,  an  inspection  of  the  subject
        apartment was conducted by a D.H.C.R. inspector  who  confirmed  the
        existence of continuing decreased services.

        On February 4, 1991, the Administrator issued an order based on said 
        inspection by denying the owner's request for rent  restoration  and
        continuing the rent reduction in effect.

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

        The Commissioner is of the opinion  that  this  petition  should  be
        denied.

        The owner's petition does not make clear whether it is  the  owner's
        contention that services had been restored before the apartment  was
        inspected or the order was issued, or whether the contention is that 
        services  were  restored  following  the  issuance   of   the   Rent
        Administrator's order.  If it is the former, then the owner's 







        Adm. Review Docket No.: FE 630029-RO
        allegation is belied by the report of the agency inspector.   If  it
        is the latter, then  the  Rent  Administrator's  order  denying  the
        owner's application to restore rent was  nevertheless  correct  when
        issued.

        This Order and Opinion is issued without prejudice  to  the  owner's
        right to file another application for restoration of services if the 
        facts so warrant.

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