No. yopur lease is for a certain term. From the info you provided - that term looks like 1 year at a time. I agree with you that the 25% is a bit much. Why not ask the rental agent for a 5 or 10% increase instead of them losing the rent from an empty unit if you move out? Try to work it out. Based on the info you gave, there is no real legal angle here.
