            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   


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

          The owner did not interpose an answer to the  tenant's  complaint
          although afforded the opportunity to do so.

          Thereafter an inspection of the subject premises was conducted by 
          a DHCR inspector who confirmed the existence of defecti e  condi-
          tions.

          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.



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

          The owner's petition does  not  make  clear  whether  it  is  the
          owner's contention that repairs had been made befo e  the  apart-
          ment was inspected  or  the  order  was  issued  or  whether  the
          contention is that repairs were made following  the  issuance  of
          the Rent Administrator's order.  If it is the  former,  then  the






          GB 610277 RO
          owner's  allegation  is  belied  by  the  report  of  the  agency
          inspector.  If it is the latter, then  the  Rent  Administrator's
          order reducing the rent was nevertheless correct when issued, and 
          this order is issued without prejudice to the owner filing a res 
          toration of services application.


          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,  denied,
          and the Rent Administrator's order be, and the  same  hereby  is,
          affirmed.


          ISSUED:



                                                                           
                                                   JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                                   Acting Deputy Commissioner
