Re: Rent Increase, Sous Location taking over the contract

As Kri mentioned, it is your right to contest the rent within 30 days as of the official date when the keys were handed.

As a new tenant you can also challenge the initial rent even if the rent has not been increased compared to that paid by the old tenant or even been lowered.

In your case the rent has been significantly increased compared to the rent paid by the former tenant. According to the Federal Supreme Court, a significant increase is at least 10%.

Here is a relevant article from ASLOCA's website.

Hope it helps! Good luck.
