            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 1335 50th Street, various apartments, 
          Brooklyn, 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, FB220003BO was 
          issued on October 4, 1991.  In that order, the Administrator 
          affirmed the finding of DL221072BR, issued January 4, 1991, that 
          the owner be granted eligibility for a 1990/91 Maximum Base Rent 
          (MBR) increase, albeit at a later effective date, due to the 
          owner's failure to timely file the Violation Certification (VC) 
          with the Administrator on a timely basis.

               On appeal, the owner states that the Administrator was in 
          error in thus delaying the effective date of the Order of 
          Eligibility. The owner contends that it had removed the requisite 
          number of violations in order to gain eligibility, and that the 
          "application" was filed on a timely basis.

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















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: FK230029RO

               The number of violations removed by the owner is not at issue 
          here.  What is at issue is the timeliness of the owner's filing of 
          the certification of such removal.

               An examination of the record reveals that the owner did not 
          submit a VC to the Administrator until November 13, 1990, after 
          nearly one-half of the 1990/91 MBR Cycle had elapsed. Section 
          2202.3(h) of the New York City Rent and Eviction Regulations 
          requires that such certification be submitted before the effective 
          date of the Order of Eligibility (usually the same date as the 
          commencement of the MBR Cycle).  If, as in the instant case the 
          owner submits the VC after the effective date the Administrator may 
          postpone the effective date, as in the instant proceeding (from 
          January 1, 1990 to June 1, 1991).

               Besides its statement on appeal, the owner has submitted no 
          evidence indicating that the VC was filed in a timely manner.

               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
