            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

          The above name petitioner-owner filed an administrative appeal 
          against an order issued on April 20, 1987 by the Rent Administrator 
          (Gertz Plaza, Jamaica, New York) concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 50 Lincoln Road, Brooklyn, New York, 
          various apartments, wherein the Administrator granted in part the 
          owner's major capital improvement (MCI) rent increase application 
          based on the installation of adequate plumbing and aluminum 
          replacement windows.  The Administrator denied the owner a rent 
          increase for elevator modernization.

          On appeal, the owner states, in substance, that the subject order's 
          effective date (October 1, 1986) is incorrect as the owner did not 
          receive the tenant notification package from the agency with 
          instructions to serve a copy of the application (and other 
          documents) on all tenants until July 22, 1986, but its MCI 
          application was filed in August 1985.

          After a careful consideration of the entire evidence of record, the 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that this administrative appeal 
          should be denied.

          At the outset, the Commissioner notes that the owner initially 
          filed an incomplete application with the Division with respect to 
          the plumbing installation as the necessary governmental approval 
          was not enclosed, and was not submitted to the Division until 
          several months later.  In accordance with the screening and 
          docketing process then effect, the Commissioner finds that the 
          increase was properly made effective for rent stabilized apartments 
          on October 1, 1986, the first rental payment date 30 days after 
          completion of the filing of the application by service of notice of 
          same on the affected tenants (Accord: CG430038RO).  In this 
          connection, the Commissioner notes that a rent reduction order for 
          stabilized apartments is made effective on the the first rent 
          payment date 30 days after the owner is served with a copy of the 
          reduction complaint.  In a similar vein, a rent restoration order 
          is effective the first rent payment date 30 days after the tenants 
          are served with a copy of the owner's restoration application.

          Stabilization Law and Code, and the Rent and Eviction Regulations
