Do I have to accept the landlord’s proposals for the new rent?

No. If you can’t agree, either or both of you can invoke the dispute resolution procedures specified in the lease. Most leases provide for a third party to determine the rent when the landlord and tenant can’t agree. This will usually involve arbitration or independent expert determination. In the event of a lease renewal, you can ask the court to fix a new rent, reflecting current open market levels.
