                                   PETITIONER

            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 48-18 48 Street, Queens, N.Y. 11377, Apt. 
          2-F.

               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, DD120039BT was 
          issued on February 2, 1990.  In that order, the Administrator 
          affirmed the finding of BL126447BR.  On appeal, the tenant contends 
          that a rent reduction order was outstanding against the subject 
          premises as of the effective date of the Administrator's order 
          under review herein, and as such, the owner was barred from 
          collecting MBR increases for 1988/89.

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

               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.

          Administrator be, and the same hereby is, affirmed.

          ISSUED:
