            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

               The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 94-26 34th Road, Jackson Heights, N.Y., 
          Apt. E-7.

               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, CK120011BT was 
          issued on December 29, 1988.  In that order, the Administrator 
          affirmed the finding of BL123081BR issued October 7, 1988, that the 
          owner be granted eligibility for a 1988/89 Maximum Base Rent (MBR).

               On appeal, the tenant individually raise objections to the 
          Administrator's order.  The tenant contends that various rent 
          reduction orders were outstanding against the subject premises as 
          of the effective date of the Administrator's order under review 
          herein, and that revocation of eligibility was justified by 
          existing violations.

               The Commissioner is of the opinion that these petitions should 
          be denied.


















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: EB120386RT

               Despite the tenant's contentions made on appeal, an 
          examination of the record reveals that the owner cleared a 
          sufficient number of violations from the subject premises so as to 
          gain eligibility to raise MBRs at the subject premises for 1988/89 
          cycle.

               The fact that there is a rent-reducing order outstanding 
          against the subject premises does not bar the owner of those 
          premises from eligibility to raise MBRs.  The owner is however 
          barred from collecting the MBR increase pending the issuance of an 
          order of rent restoration, at which time the MBR increase becomes 
          collectible prospectively only if the rent-reducing order so 
          provides specific reference was made, in the Administrator's order, 
          to the limit on collectibility.

               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
