Rent increase – The increase of the rent can have different reasons. For example, the landlord has the right to increase the rent if he wants to carry out modernisation measures or to adjust it to a general rent increase. However, the rent may only be increased 15 months after the last rent increase at the earliest, and may not be higher than 20% within three years. If the tenant does not agree with the rent increase, he can refuse his consent, which means that the landlord must then sue for consent.
