            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   


          The above-named owner filed a  timely  petition  for  administra-
          tive review of an order issued concerning  the  housing  accommo-
          dation 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 below by filing a  complaint
          asserting that the owner had failed to maintain certain  services
          in the subject apartment.

          In its answer, the owner denied the allegations set forth in  the
          tenant's  complaint  or  otherwise  asserted  that  all  required
          repairs had been completed.             

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

          The Rent Administrator directed restoration of these services and 
          further ordered, a reduction of the stabilization rent.

          In its petition for administrative review, the owner  states,  in
          substance, that repairs had been performed.



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

          Although, it is the owner's  contention  that  repairs  had  been
          made before the apartment was inspected, the  owner's  allegation
          is belied by the report of the  agency  inspector.   Accordingly,
          the  Commissioner  finds  that  the  Rent  Administrator's  order
          reducing the rent was correct when  issued,  and  this  order  is






          GA 210148-RO
          issued without prejudice to the owner  filing  a  restoration  of
          services application.


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

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


          ISSUED:



                                                                           
                                                   JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                   Acting Deputy Commissioner
