An increase of 25% rent is legal in Poland?

Dear people,

I need an urgent help regarding my rent.

I have rent a flat in krakow for the last three years and there was no change on rent since I moved in. Current tenancy agreement will expire at the end of June.

Last night, my landlord sent me an email with new tenancy agreement with an increase of 25% in rent and a few % increase of czynszy, in total 29% increase. Generally, 3-5% annual increase can be acceptable, but I was not prepared for this at all.

Are there any laws to protect tenants in Poland? Is one month notice right? Could I be against this with a lawful support behind my back?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Tell him that you want a 20% cut in the rent or he can find a new tenant. I read an article last weekend said rents in Tricity down 25-50% now

Tentant wants to increase rent 40%


I have a fixed term lease contract for 1 year, ending next month. We just agreed to prolong the contract but he requests to increase the rent cost from 1300 to 1800 pln (+ expenses) in order to do so.

My question is, is he legally allowed to request such increase? Do i have any rights regarding this apartment, can i extend the contract with a reasonable increase of like 5% instead?

I think the law is on his side because of the contract being fixed term but I'd like to check just in case. Many thanks!

By the way, this is in Krakow, just in case it's relevant information.

Yes - it's completely legal. Try and negotiate a smaller increase with him - he won't want the hassle of finding another tenant
