business lease renewal?
If you signed that it's $30 a year then that what it is and they cannot change that just because they want to. At least it doesn't seem right that they can just make things up as they go.

Landlords suck, I'm telling you. It's hard to say if $300 more is reasonable. This is $300 per year I assume. How much are you paying now? Is it a 5% increase, or 10% increase or more than that? Now that the landlord has requested this change the lease you agreed to is invalid. Maybe it's time to play hardball. Say that you simply can't afford that increase, and if that is built in, you want a 1-year lease with two additional one year options (or however many years you want but make sure they are all in one-year increments). And add the clause that the non-rent items, the triple net and CAM, will be negotiated at the start of each option year.

You sign the lease or move somewhere else. You could try to talk her down a bit but if she won't budge (or won't budge enough) then leave. She's just trying to make as much as she can off the place and probably thinks she could get this rent from someone else if you left. You do, in the question, say you already signed the lease and if thats the case and it stipulates $30 increment, then the landlord will have to wait before they can change it but if its not signed then they can charge whatever they want.
