            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 24-6 East 82nd Street, Apts. 4R, 4B, 4D, 
          New York, New York.

              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, DG420483BO was issued 
          on November 30, 1990.  In that order, the Administrator affirmed 
          the finding of BL428648BR issued June 22, 1989, that the owner be 
          denied eligibility for a 1988/89 Maximum Base Rent (MBR) increase, 
          due to the owner's failure to meet the violation certification 
          requirements necessary to the owner's being granted an MBR increase 
          specifically that the owner failed to certify that 80% of the non 
          rent impairing violations at the subject premises of record as of 
          January 1, 1987 (1 year before the effective date of the order of 
          eligibility) had been repaired by July 1, 1987 (six months before 
          the effective date), as required by section 2202.3(h) of the New 
          York City Rent and Eviction Regulations.

              On appeal, the owner states that it "believes" that 80% of the 
          non rent impairing violations were corrected.

              The Commissioner is of the opinion that this petition should be 












          Docket No. FA430047RO

          denied.

              The Administrator's affirmation of the denial of eligibility 
          was based on the results of an inspection of the subject premises 
          conducted on September 14, 1990 by the New York City Department of 
          Housing Preservation and Development (HPD).  That inspection 
          disclosed that fewer than 80% of the non rent impairing violations 
          of record as of January 1, 1987 had been repaired (The HPD 
          inspection was conducted over three years after the July 1, 1987 
          "deadline".)

              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
