“They are proposing a 15% rent increase”

“Dear PoPville,

My annual rent increase and lease renewal paperwork recently arrived. They are proposing a 15% increase, supposedly to bring our unit more in line with the market rate. However, we took over a former tenant’s lease last year and we know that they had been asked for only a 1% rent increase in the year prior. I am wondering if we have any recourse to get the building to adhere closer to that 1% (the unit is not rent controlled and never was)? The building has made no improvements so there is no other justification for the big hike.”
