Then there are the terms you agreed to in your lease.
If you want to find out if your lease does not "comply" with the "rules", ask a lawyer, not a website.
(Please note: when you choose an answer as a Best Answer, or at least give a thumbs up, it helps those who answer questions here.)
Contact your attorney and have them write a nice letter. You may write the landlord a nice note outlining your belief based on the lease and its terms.
It's from the state of MA.
Then read your lease carefully, to see what it states.
The usual procedure is that you both have the same window of time in which to notify the other. So the landlord should have told you of a rent increase 30 days before. I have never heard of someone raising it in the middle of a tenancy, which you are.
Auto-renew is common. I do it for all my tenants.
Hope this helps!
