60% increase in rent (Warsaw, open-ended contract) - do I have to agree?

Hello everyone,

my landlord apparently wants to take advantage of the currently artifially high rents caused by Ukranian refugees to increase the rent by 60%. My rental contract is open-ended, and I don't see in the contract that the landlord can end the contract if I don't agree to such an increase (it's pretty much a standard contract I believe).

My question is: what is the landlord's legal possibility to enforce a higher rent? Can he just terminate the contract and throw me out if we don't come to a mutual agreement?

Any help is much appreciated!

to increase the rent by 60%

Price gouging by a skanky chancer. You need to find another landlord.

Can he just terminate the contract

Yes, as can you, providing the notice period (and informing him/you correctly of it) in your contract is observed by the party making the change. The

And there isn't officially a specific period of time for announcing and enforcing increase of rent? I heard somewhere (but don't know if it's correct) that an increase in rent has to be announced 6 months prior to the application of it. Does anyone know if that's true?

@Michael1976, in case of an open-ended rental contract it's 3 months, unless your contract with the landlord says otherwise (it can be longer).

The rules concerning the increase in rent are regulated by law:

For example, the landlord is allowed to increase the rent based on the inflation from the previous year (so from 2021 in your case).

Hey, econ genius, there is no such thing as "price gauging". In a free economy, the seller has a right to ask for any amount and you have a right to offer any amount. If those amounts are different, the parties do not enter into a binding contract. Duh!

As far as 60%, by letting the refugees in, you, idiots, increased the demand while the supply of apartments remained the same. According to the law of supply and demand, prices were bound to go up. Duh! And hahahahahahahaha...because that is what I predicted way back. Me, an econ genius...

Hahahaha...What are you? Three? Why should a landlord ask for less than a tenant is willing to pay? I am assuming that the landlord is not holding a gun to his head...

So who is a naive loon here?

The landlord js bound by the original contract which the landlord also freely signed.

The contract is subject to Polish law, which provides some protections for tenants.

The rule of law and democracy helping a fair society - smells beautiful !

Maybe one day that will be possible in Russia
