    Hi Mark & All,

    Hopefully you can share your thoughts or answer my question below.

    I currently live with my family in a rented apartment in the center of Barcelona. Our contract ends October 31, and by that time we have been living in our apartment for three years.  The agency has asked us by letter if we would like to stay. We said yes by email.

    Now, the agency came back by email and said pretty much the following with a couple of official attachments which pretty much said the following:

    1. Rent increase of +15%.
    2. That we have to pay “Gastos Contratacion” of about 1 months rent.
    3. New contract is for three years.

    For the second point above, is that allowed by law?  I believe the first one is, but I am really not sure about the second one.

    Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated.

    Thank you.
