               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 
            hereby sustained.

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

            ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied and 
            that the Administrator's order be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.



            ISSUED:



                                                                          
                                            JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                            Deputy Commissioner
