You don't have to agree and the landlord does not have to rent to you. The lease is up to negotiation. Put in what you want if the landlord wont agree, you will need to find another place. That is the legal end of this. The emotional end or lack of desire to move is up to you.

If you do not sign or leave you may be considered a Holdover, responsible for triple rent. Move out.
