Rent Increase, Sous Location taking over the contract

Hello everybody,
Long time lurker, first time posted
I have searched for my problem to no avail, my apologies if I missed it!
We arrived in Lausanne in January, and took a sous location contract in 1006. Now the original tenants want to hand the flat to us, as they want something larger when they return to Switzerland. They handed in the reprise du bail last week, and today the Regie came to check the flat condition. Now they have called and said that the new rental price is 2190, the contract the tenant has, and what we are currently paying is 1590 for 2.5 pieces. A near 40% increase. With this, they will do a little painting they said. Now this is clearly quite ridiculous, but I wonder what are our rights? And chances? Shall we accept this contract, and then contest is within the 30 days? Or perhaps now with this 40% our dossier may not be sufficient! I am sadly a PhD student still studying in the UK, whilst my girlfriend is a post doc at EPFL! Thankyou in advance for your help and/or opinions!
