There is unfortunately no limit on rent increases, so the landlord can increase to this.It is possible to challenge rent increases in the Tenancy Tribunal but that would mean an application to the Tribunal. I do not believe that would helpful

24Rent increases

The rent payable in respect of any tenancy may be increased by the landlord provided all of the following conditions are complied with:

(a)

the landlord shall give the tenant notice in writing of the increase; and

(b)

that notice shall specify the amount of the increased rent and the day upon which the increased rent shall become payable; and

(c)

the day upon which the increased rent shall become payable shall be not less than 60 days (or, in the case of a boarding house tenancy, not less than 28 days) after the date on which that notice is given; and

(d)

the rent must not be increased within 12 months after the date of the commencement of the tenancy; and
