            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW   


          The above-named owner refiled 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 and alleged a denial of access without submit 
          ting any substantiation thereof.

          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 regulated 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  s  the  own-
          er's contention that repairs had been made before  the  apartment
          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  owner's






          GA 610050-RO
          allegation is belied by the report of the agency  inspector.   If
          it is the later, 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  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
