ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


     On September 8, 1987, the above-named petitioner-tenant filed
duplicate  Petitions for Administrative Review  against  an  order
issued on August 14, 1987, by the Director, MBR Unit, 92-31  Union
Hall   Street,   Jamaica,   New  York,  concerning   the   housing
accommodations known as 2 West 111th Street, Brooklyn,  New  York,
Apartment 2E.

     The Administrative Appeal is being determined pursuant to the
provisions of 9NYCRR 2201.4.

     The issue herein is whether the landlord is entitled to 1986-
87 Maximum Base Rent (hereafter MBR) increases.

      The  Commissioner has reviewed all of the  evidence  in  the
record  and  has carefully considered that portion of  the  record
relevant to the issue raised by the administrative appeal.

      The  Director's order, appealed herein, denied the  tenant's
challenge  to  a MBR order finding the landlord was  eligible  for
1986-87 MBR increases effective January 1, 1986.

     This order was based upon a finding that the landlord met all
requirements in order to qualify for 1986-87 MBR increases.

      In this petition, the tenant alleges, in substance, that the
landlord has not met the requirements stated in the order.

      The Commissioner is of the opinion that this petition should
be denied.

      Procedures  established under the Rent Law  and  Regulations
provide,  among  other  things, that  no  rent  increases  may  be
authorized under the MBR program commencing January 1, 1986 unless
the  landlord  has removed all of the "rent impairing"  violations
(as  defined  in the multiple dwelling law, Section 302a)  and  at
least 80% of all other violations on record as of January 1, 1985,
or six months prior to the filing of the 1986-87 violation
certification, whichever is later.

      In the instant case, the record discloses that as of January
1,  1985, there was 1 " rent impairing" violation and no "non rent
impairing"  violations against the subject premises and  therefore
the  landlord  was  required  to remove  the  1  "rent  impairing"
violation  in order to obtain 1986-87 MBR increases.  The  records
further  indicate that the landlord removed the 1 "rent impairing"
violation.  Accordingly the Director's order denying the  tenant's
challenge to the 1986-87 MBR increases was warranted.

      THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent and
Eviction Regulations for New York City, it is

     ORDERED, that this petition for administrative review be, and
the  same  hereby is, denied, and, that the order of the  Director
be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.
