                                   PETITIONER

            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 887 Bedford Avenue, Apt. 3L, 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, FB220021BO was 
          issued on December 11, 1992.  In that order, the Administrator 
          affirmed the finding of ED220046BR, issued February 7, 1991, that 
          the owner be denied eligibility for a 1990/91 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 owner contends that he cleared a sufficient 
          number of violations in order to gain eligibility, and refers to 
          documentation he submitted to the Administrator below, in response 
          to a Request for Additional Information from the Administrator.  
          This documentation includes a letter from a construction firm 
          describing work done, as well as an agreement with an exterminator, 
          by which agreement the owner contracted for extermination services.

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















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: HA220112RO

               An examination of the documentation submitted by the owner 
          before the Administrator discloses that the owner does not prove 
          clearance of a sufficient amount of violations (all of the rent- 
          impairing and at least 80% of the non rent-impairing) of record 
          against the subject premises in order to gain for himself 
          eligibility to raise MBRs at the subject premises for 1990/91.

               Moreover, an inspection of the subject premises conducted on 
          May 13, 1992 (over four months after the end of the 1990/91 cycle) 
          by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and 
          Development discloses that as of that date none of the violations 
          had been cleared.           

               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
