City Rent and Eviction Regulations
New York City Rent Stabilization Code



This Revised Operational Bulletin is issued pursuant to:

     City Rent and Eviction Regulations - Section 2209.8
     Rent Stabilization Code - Section 2527.11

Pursuant to Operational Bulletin 90-1, effective August 1, 1990,
owners are required to submit a sufficient number of copies of
the following applications, as well as Major Capital Improvement
("MCI") rent increase applications, upon filing thereof with the
Office of Rent Administration (ORA), to enable ORA to serve each
affected tenant:

     Building-Wide Increase, Decrease, or Substitution of

     Building-Wide Restoration of Rent

     Owner's Petition for Administrative Review (PAR) (of orders
     affecting multiple tenants)

Owners are also required to submit a 4" x 1" self-sticking
mailing label addressed to each affect tenant, which must be 4"
wide and 1" high, to accommodate DHCR's window envelopes. See
sample label reproduced below.

          Mr. John Doe
          Tenant/Apt. O
          00-000 0 Street
          Jamaica, NY 00000

Because MCI servicing is now automated and the pertinent
information from the owner's application is included in the
computer generated notices which are mailed to tenants, the
requirement that owners submit extra copies of MCI applications
and mailing labels is no longer necessary and is therefore
discontinued. The owner is still required to submit an original
and one copy of the application with all supporting

The provisions of Operational Bulletin 90-1 with regard to the
other types of applications listed above remain in effect.

Joseph A. D'Agosta
Acting Deputy Commissioner for Rent Administration
