                  ORDER AND OPINION DENYING AND MERGING PETITIONS FOR 
          ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW



              The above-named tenants filed timely petitions for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 69 Tiemann Place, Various Apartments, New 
          York, New York.

              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 issue before the Commissioner is whether the 
          Administrator's order was correct.

              The Administrator's order being appealed, 7MBC00152M was issued 
          on July 30, 1987.  In that order, the Administrator modified the 
          finding of 7M06393M issued October 17, 1986, that the owner be 
          granted eligibility for a 1986/87 Maximum Base Rent (MBR) increase. 

              On appeal, the tenants argue that the owner has not corrected 
          the requisite number of violations so as to become eligible for an 
          MBR increase.  The tenants submit as proof of their allegations a 
          computer printout of a New York City Department of Housing 
          Preservation and Development (HPD) report of an inspection of the 
          subject premises.

              The Commissioner is of the opinion that these petitions should 












          Docket No. BI430315RT

          be denied and merged.

              An HPD inspection of the subject premises disclosed that, in 
          accordance with section 2202.3(h) of the New York city Rent and 
          Eviction Regulations the owner had cleaned 80% of the non rent 
          impairing violations from the subject premises.

              The Commissioner notes that, in addition to all residing at 69 
          Tiemann Place the four petitioning tenants all appealed the same 
          Administrator's order, and all made similar arguments in their 
          appeals.  The Commissioner is therefore of the opinion that these 
          petitions be merged.

              THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of the Rent and 
          Eviction Regulations, it is

              ORDERED, that these petition for administrative review be, and 
          the same hereby are, denied, and that the order of the Rent 
          Administrator be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.  It is further 
          ordered that these petitions for administrative review be, and the 
          same hereby are, merged.

          ISSUED:



                                                                            
                                             Joseph A. D'Agosta
                                             Deputy Commissioner
