[Dear Sir/Madam,]

As part of the lease renewal, you proposed to me an increase in rent equal to the increase.

In accordance with Article 17(2) of the Law of 6 July 1989, I challenge this increase. Indeed, I feel that the new amount of my rent is [amount of the new rent] is too high and does not conform to the rents usually found in the neighborhood for comparable dwellings.
