            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 220 Audubon Avenue, 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, CI520105BT was 
          issued on March 23, 1990.  In that order, the Administrator revoked 
          the finding of 7M01081M, issued June 29, 1988, that the owner be 
          granted eligibility for a 1986/87 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.  The 
          Administrator additionally found that the owner had failed to pay 
          the MBR Fee for the subject premises for 1986/87.

               On appeal, the owner contends that it did clear the requisite 
          number of violations from the subject premises, and that proof of 
          its payment of the MBR fee would be obtained from the owner's bank.

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

















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: ED530168RO 



               An inspection of the subject premises conducted by the New 
          York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development on 
          December 11, 1989 disclosed that, even as of that late date (almost 
          two years after the conclusion of the 1986/87 cycle) the owner had 
          failed to clear the requisite number of violations from the subject 
          premises in order to gain eligibility.

               The Commissioner notes that in the approximately three and 
          one-half years between the filing of the owner's petition and the 
          issue of the instant order, the owner has failed to serve on this 
          Agency any proof of its payment of the 1986/87 MBR Fee.   

               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
