            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

               The above-named owner filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 139-41 Washington Place a/k/a 10 Sheridan 
          Square, 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 before the Commissioner is whether the 
          Administrator's order was correct.

               The Administrator's order being appealed, 7MBC00036M was 
          issued on October 23, 1987.  In that order, the Administrator 
          revoked the finding of 7MI10999M issued June 26, 1986, that the 
          owner be granted 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 submits documentation which ostensibly 
          proves that the Violation Certification was submitted below.

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


















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: BL430322RO

               An inspection conducted by the New York City Department of 
          Housing Preservation and Development disclosed that more than 80% 
          of the rent impairing violations of record as of one year before 
          the effective date of the order of eligibility (January 1, 1985) 
          were still unrepaired as of six months before the effective date 
          (June 1,1985).  The Commissioner is therefore of the opinion that 
          the adequacy of the owner's submissionsbelow is irrelevant to the 
          Administrator's findings.

               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, denied, and that the order of the Rent 
          Administrator be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.

          ISSUED:







                                                                 
                                        JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                        Deputy Commissioner
