            ORDER AND OPINION DENYING PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REVIEW

               The above-named tenant filed a timely petition for 
          administrative review of an order issued concerning the housing 
          accommodations known as 211 W. 88th Street, N. Y. C. 10024, #2-A.

               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, DG420478BO was 
          issued on August 9, 1991.  In that order, the Administrator revoked 
          the finding of BL423026BR 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.

               On appeal, the tenant contends that DHCR didn't follow the 
          proper form of due process, the landlord had never notified the 
          tenant in order to inform him that the Violations had been cured 
          and that no inspector from DHCR had ever contacted the tenant in 
          order to ascertain whether the Violations were cured to the 
          tenant's satisfaction.

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

















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: FH420288RT

               An examination of the record discloses that the owner cleared 
          a sufficient number of Violations from the subject premises, so as 
          to gain eligibility to raise MBRs for 1988/89.

               The Commissioner notes that an owner's eligibility to increase 
          MBRs at a given premises for a given cycle is adjudged solely upon 
          Violations cited on the L.P.V.  There were no violations cited on 
          the L.P.V. for the aforementioned tenant.  The tenant is hereby 
          advised that this order is issued without prejudice to the tenant's 
          right to file a complaint of reduction in services, if the facts so 
          warrant.

               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
