       DAVID JASKIEL                        NO.: EC 220007-B0(CA 220824-BR)
                           PETITIONER    :

           ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

     On  February  21,  1991,  the  above-named  owner  filed  a  petition  for
     administrative review of an order issued on January 18, 1991 by a District 
     Rent Administrator concerning the housing accommodations as 8-12 Bay  22nd
     Street, Brooklyn, New York, Apt. 1.

     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 for review.

     The issue herein is whether the owner is entitled to 1988-89 Maximum  Base
     Rent increases.

     On February 16, 1990 the Director of the MBR unit, issued an order denying 
     the owner eligibility for Maximum Base  Rent  increases  for  the  subject
     building (Docket No. CA 220824-BR) on the basis that the owner had  failed
     to  meet  the   Operating   and   Maintenance   and   Essential   Services
     Certification (O & M) required  to  qualify  for  the  MBR  increase.   On
     January 18, 1991 the Director issued an order  (Docket  No.  EC  220007-BO
     affirming the prior order.  

     In his petition dated February 21, 1991, the owner asserts that he met the 
     O & M requirement and thereby qualified for the 1988-89 MBR increases.

     After a careful consideration of the entire record, the Commissioner is of 
     the opinion that this petition should be denied.

     The record reveals that  on  January  17,  1989  the  owner  submitted  an
     incomplete O & M Certification.  The owner photocopied the D.H.C.R. O &  M
     forms neglecting to copy the reverse  sides  of  pages,  thereby  deleting
     necessary information.  The D.H.C.R requested  that  the  owner  submit  a
     complete O & M certification, to which the owner responded  by  submitting
     the very same incomplete certification as had originally been received  by
     the D.H.C.R.

     The Commissioner finds that the owner was twice  given  a  full  and  fair
     opportunity to submit a complete O & M certification and failed to do  so.
     Accordingly, the order of the Acting Director of the MBR Unit (Docket  No.
     EC 2200007-BO), affirming the denial of the owner's O &  M  certification,
     should be affirmed.







          DOCKET NUMBER: FB 220267-RO
     THEREFORE, in accordance with the City Rent and  Rehabillitation  Law  and
     the Rent and Eviction Regulations, it is

     ORDERED, that this petition be, and the same hereby is, denied,  and  that
     the Administrator's order issued under Docket No. EC 220007-BO be, and the 
     same hereby is, affirmed.

     ISSUED:













                                                                   
                                     ELLIOT SANDER
                                     Deputy Commissioner
