                                   PETITIONER
          ------------------------------------X

                      ORDER AND OPINION TERMINATING PROCEEDING

               On January 16, 1990, the above-named tenant filed a Petition 
          for Administrative Review (PAR) against an order issued on December 
          29, 1989 by the Rent Administrator of the Rent Office located at 
          Gertz Plaza, Jamaica, N.Y.

               On appeal the tenant states:  "Attached are court papers.  The 
          owner has not cured court order but has reduced (sic) rent $8.00."  
          The tenant attaches various documentation to his appeal.

               The Commissioner is of the opinion that this proceeding should 
          be terminated.

               The tenant on appeal has not stated an objection to the 
          Administrator's order being appealed herein, CH420028BT.  In that 
          order the Administrator granted the owner eligibility to raise MBRs 
          at the subject premises for the 1988/89 cycle.

               An examination of the record discloses that the proceeding 
          under docket #CH420028BT was initiated by the tenant's Challenge to 
          Administrator's order #BL426040BR, said order granting the owner 
          eligibility.  The Commissioner notes that, at Challenge the 
          tenant's only objection to the grant of eligibility was the room 
          count of his apartment.  In the order issued under CH420028BT, the 
          Administrator, in addition to affirming the owner's eligibility to 
          raise 1988/89 MBRs at the subject premises enclosed a form for the 
          tenant to fill out relative to the room count issue.
















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: EA420058RT

               The documents submitted by the tenant on review (the "court 
          papers") consist of an Order and Notice of Violation issued by New 
          York City Housing Court on July 1, 1987 along with a Civil Court 
          "Request for Inspection" form similarly dated, as well as a "Report 
          of New Violations" form dated June 17, 1987.

               The Commissioner notes that, to obtain eligibility to raise 
          MBRs at the subject premises for 1988/89 the owner was only 
          responsible for the clearance of violations of record as of January 
          1, 1987 and not for any disclosed by later inspections.  The 
          Commissioner is of the opinion that the Administrator was correct 
          in determining that the owner had cleared violations in a manner so 
          as to gain it eligibility.

               THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 403, 
          Laws of 1983, as amended, it is

               ORDERED, that this Administrative Review proceeding be, and 
          the same hereby is, terminated.

          ISSUED:




                                                                            
                                             JOSEPH A. D'AGOSTA
                                             Deputy Commissioner
