PETITIONER APT. 4A, BRONX, N.Y.
ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
The above-named tenants timely filed a Petition for Administrative
Review of an order issued on June 19, 1992 concerning the housing
accommodations relating to the above described docket number.
The Commissioner has reviewed all of the evidence in the record and
has carefully considered that portion of the record relevant to the
issues raised by the petition.
The tenants commenced the proceeding on November 5, 1990 by filing
a complaint which asserts that the owner failed to maintain certain
services in the subject apartment.
In an answer filed on December 19, 1990, the owner stated in
substance that the complained of conditions are being addressed.
In a supplemental answer filed on April 1, 1991, the owner asserted
that all repairs had been completed.
Thereafter, an on-site inspection of the subject apartment was
conducted on May 14, 1992 by a DHCR staff member who confirmed that
the owner maintained the services in the subject apartment.
Based on this inspection, the Administrator terminated the proceed
ing and denied the tenants' application on June 19, 1992.
In the petition for administrative review, the tenants contend that
certain defective conditions continue to exist.

The owner interposed an answer denying the allegations in the
petition and asserted that these conditions were corrected.
After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion that
this petition should be denied.
The Administrator's determination was based on a physical inspection
conducted by a DHCR staff member who confirmed that there was no
decrease in services in the subject apartment at the time of
inspection. The determination was in all respects proper and is
THEREFORE, in accordance with the Rent Stabilization Law and Code,
ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied and
that the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.
