            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

               The above-named tenants filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 290 Sixth Ave., New York, N.Y. 10014.

               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, EF430011RK was 
          issued on August 22, 1990.  In that order, the Administrator 
          revoked the finding of DF420022BT issued April 6, 1990, that the 
          owner be denied eligibility for a 1988/89 Maximum Base Rent (MBR) 
          increase.

               On appeal, the tenants submit a letter indicating that the 
          owner had failed to remove required number of Violations on record, 
          one year prior to the effective date of the order in question.  The 
          tenants contend that the Administrator was in error in granting the 
          owner eligibility.

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

               Despite the tenants' contentions made on appeal, an 
          examination of the record, and H.P.D. Inspection Report dated 
          December 3, 1987 reveal 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 1990/91.














          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: EI430092RT

               Pursuant to Section 2202.3(h) of the N.Y.C. Rent and Eviction 
          Regulations an owner, in order to receive eligibility to raise MBRs 
          at a given premises for a given cycle must certify to the 
          Administrator that, any six months before the effective date of the 
          order of eligibility 100% of the rent-impairing and 80% of the non 
          rent-impairing Violations of record against the subject premises as 
          of one year before the effective date have been cleared.

               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
