            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 77 West 104th Street, New York 10025.

               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, GH420034BO was 
          issued on April 2, 1993.  In that order, the Administrator affirmed 
          the finding of FF420859BR issued July 8, 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, specifically the owner's failure to clear more than 80% 
          of the non-rent impairing and 100% of the rent impairing violations 
          of record against the subject premises.

               On appeal, the owner argues that the requisite number of 
          violations have been cleared from the subject premises.  As 
          evidence, the owner submits on appeal a copy of a N.Y.C. Department 
          of Housing.  Preservation and Development (HPD) List of Pending 
          Violations (LPV) various violation number on the LPV have been 
          circled and inscribed "Done".

               The Commissioner is of the opinion that this petition should 












          Docket No. HD420095RO

          be denied.

               On appeal, as well as at challenge below, the owner's 
          submission of evidence in support of his contention is limited to 
          the LPV as described above.  The owner obviously intends his 
          notation of a particular violation as "done" to prove to the 
          Commissioner that violation has been repaired.

               The Commissioner cannot regard such unverifiable and 
          selfserving evidence as proof of the owner's repair of the 
          violations.

               THEREFORE,  in accordance with 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
