ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
The above-named owner filed a timely petition for administrative
review of an order issued 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.
The tenant commenced this proceeding by fili g a complaint as-
serting 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 re-
pairs had been or will be completed.
On April 25, 1990 the tenant informed the Rent Administrator that
all repairs had been effectuated.
Thereafter an inspection of the subject premises was conducted by
a DHCR inspector who confirmed the existence of defective condi-
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 have been performed.
In answer to the owner's petition the tenant requests that the
order be reversed. He states that he informed the inspector that
there were no problems in his apartment and that all repairs had
been made. The tenant asserts that the order should have been
cancelled long ago and that rent reduction was not warranted.
After careful consideration, the Commissioner is of the opinion
that the petition should be granted and that the Rent Adminis-
trator's order should be revoked based upon the mutual agreement
of the parties.
THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent Stabili
zation Law and Code, it is,
ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, granted,
and that the Rent Administrator's order be, and the same hereby
