              JILLANDREA                          NOS.: DG420021BT 
              REALTY ASSOCIATES                         (BK424867BR)
                                   PETITIONER            DH420031BO


               The above-named owner filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 310 West 85th Street, 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, DH420031RO was 
          issued on June 9, 1989.  In that order, the Administrator revoked 
          the finding of BK424867BR issued January 1, 1989, that the owner be 
          granted 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 

               On appeal, the owner contends that the Administrator was in 
          error, specifically in its finding that the owner had not made 
          sufficient repairs to violations of record as of one year before 
          the effective date of the Administrator's order (in the instant 
          proceeding, the owner had to prove repair of violations on record 
          as of January 1, 1987).

               The Commissioner is of the opinion that this appeal should be 

          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: FA420039RO

               Pursuant to Section 2202.3(h) of the New York City Rent and 
          Eviction Regulations an owner, in order to gain eligibility for an 
          MBR increase at the subject premises must certify to the 
          Administrator that, as of six months prior to the effective date of 
          the order of eligibility 100% of the rent impairing and 80% of the 
          non rent impairing violations of record at the subject premises as 
          of one year before the effective date of the order must have been 

               An examination of the record below reveals that an inspection 
          by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and 
          Development of the subject premises disclosed that the owner had 
          made such timely repairs, in order to make it eligible for an MBR 
          increase at the subject premises.

               This order is issued without prejudice to the tenant's right 
          to file a Complaint of a Reduction in services, if the facts so 

               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 granted, and that the order of the Rent 
          Administrator be and the same hereby is revoked.

               The owner in the instant proceeding is granted eligibility to 
          raise MBR rents at the subject premises subject to the Terms and 
          Conditions on the Attached Sheet.
