            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 392 12th Street, Brooklyn, N.Y. 11215.   

               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, GH220309BO was 
          issued on March 5, 1993.  In that order, the Administrator affirmed 
          the finding of FE220008BR issued March 27, 1992, that the owner be 
          denied eligibility for a 1992/93 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 reiterates the arguments he made at 
          challenge and resubmits copies of the evidence he submitted at 
          challenge in support of his arguments. The owner argues that all 
          outstanding violations have been removed and he should thus be 
          granted eligibility.  The evidence submitted by the owner consists 
          of a report of an inspection of the subject premises made on August 
          25, 1992 by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation 
          and Development (HPD).

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















          ADM. REVIEW DOCKET NO.: HC220116RO

               Section 2202.3(h) of the New York City Rent and Eviction 
          Regulations states, that in order to obtain eligibility to increase 
          MBRs at a given premises for a given cycle, the owner of that 
          premises must certify to the Administrator that, inter alia 100% of 
          all rent-impairing and 80% of all non rent-impairing violations 
          outstanding against the subject premises have been cleared.

               The Commissioner also notes that the owner has not submitted 
          any more documentary evidence on appeal in support of his 
          assertions.

               Further examination of the record reveals that the owner in 
          the instant proceeding has failed to reach the 80% threshold.  The 
          Commissioner notes that the H.P.D. report, as well as the evidence 
          submitted by the owner in response to that report, was examined in 
          the most favorable light possible for the owner.

               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
