            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 165 Seaman Avenue, Apt. 2J, 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, CI520123BT was 
          issued on December 8, 1989. In that order, the Administrator 
          affirmed the finding of BL522172BR, issued June 17, 1988, that the 
          owner be granted eligibility for a 1988/89 Maximum Base Rent (MBR) 
          increase, due to the owner's meeting the violation certification 
          requirements necessary to the owner's being granted an MBR 
          increase.

               On appeal the tenant contends that the Administrator was in 
          error in granting eligibility, due to the fact that an order 
          finding a decrease in services at the subject premises and thus 
          directing a rent reduction was outstanding as of the effective date 
          of the Administrator's order being appealed herein.

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

















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: EA520021RT

               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 increases become 
          collectible prospectively only.

               The Commissioner notes that, as of the issue date of the 
          instant order the owner of the subject premises had not yet 
          received an order of rent restoration.      

               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
