            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW


          Daniel J. Abrams, a Rent Control  Tenant  in  Apt.  #621  of  the
          subject building  filed  a  timely  petition  for  administrative
          review of an order issued concerning  the  building  relating  to
          the above described docket number.

          The Commissioner has reviewed all the evidence in the record  and
          has carefully considered that  portion  relevant  to  the  issues
          raised by the petition.

          The owner commenced this proceeding by filing an application  for
          an MBR order for 86-87 certifying that he had removed 100% of his 
          rent impairing and 80% of his not rent impairing violations.
          In his answer, the tenant denied the allegations set forth in the 
          owner's application  or  otherwise  asserted  that  all  required
          repairs have not be effectuated.

          The MBR order was granted based on  a  thorough  HPD  inspection.
          The Rent Administrator granted the subject MBR  based  on  proper
          reliance with HPD inspection records.

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


          The tenants' petition does not  make  clear  whether  it  is  his
          contention that service deficiencies existed before the  building
          was inspected or the order was issued or whether  the  contention
          is that service deficiencies occurred following the  issuance  of
          the Rent Administrator's order.  If it is the  former,  then  the
          allegation is belied by the report of the MBR inspector.   If  it
          is the latter, than the Rent  Administrator's  order  grantingMBR
          order was nevertheless correct when issued,  and  this  order  is
          issued without prejudice to the tenants  rights  to  file  a  new
          application for rent  reductions  if  the  facts  so  warrant  or
          challenging subsequent MBR orders.






          Docket No. BE 610086-RT

          THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent  Control
          Law and Registations and the Emergency Tenant Protection  Act  of
          2974, 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
