            ORDER AND OPINION GRANTING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW
                             AND TERMINATING PROCEEDING

               The above-named owner filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 206 East 90th Street, Various apartments, 
          New York, N.Y.

               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 on appeal is whether the Administrator's order is 
          correct.

               The Administrator's order being appealed, 7MBC000294M was 
          issued on October 16, 1987.  In that order, the Administrator 
          affirmed the finding of 7M04111M issued March 25, 1987, that the 
          owner be denied eligibility for a 1986/87 Maximum Base Rent (MBR) 
          increase, due to the owner's failure to meet the violation 
          certification requirements necessary to the owner's being granted 
          an MBR increase.

               On appeal, the owner contends that the Administrator was in 
          error, specifically in its finding that the owner had not made 
          sufficient repairs to violations of record as of one year before 
          the effective date of the Administrator's order (in the instant 
          proceeding, the owner had to prove repair of violations on record 
          as of January 1, 1985).

               The Commissioner is of the opinion that this appeal should be 
          granted.














          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NOS.: BK430262RO, BK430375RO

               Pursuant to Section 2202.3(h) of the New York City Rent and 
          Eviction Regulations an owner, in order to gain eligibility for an 
          MBR increase at the subject premises must certify to the 
          Administrator that, as of six months prior to the effective date of 
          the order of eligibility 100% of the rent impairing and 80% of the 
          non rent impairing violations of record at the subject premises as 
          of one year before the effective date of the order must have been 
          repaired.

               An examination of the record below reveals that an inspection 
          by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and 
          Development of the subject premises disclosed that the owner had 
          made such timely repairs in order to make it eligible for an MBR 
          increase at the subject premises.

               The Commissioner notes that the two petitions under 
          consideration are identical.  The Commissioner therefore orders 
          that Petition for Administrative Review #BK430262RO be terminated 
          as duplicative of BK430375RO.

               This order is issued without prejudice to the tenant's right 
          to file a Complaint of a Reduction in Services, if the facts so 
          warrant.

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

               ORDERED, that this petition for administrative review be, and 
          the same hereby is granted, and that the order of the Rent 
          Administrator be and the same hereby is, revoked.    

               The owner in the instant proceeding is granted eligibility to 
          raise MBR rents at the subject premises subject to the Terms and 
          Conditions on the attached sheet.  

               The owner is directed to collect retroactive rent increases 
          from the subject tenants on a monthly installment basis, over a 
          period not to exceed sixty (60) months.

          ISSUED:




                                                                         
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
