Can my landlord increase rent if it is already way above market price?

    I’m two years in my apartment and the rent is about €200 more than similar apartments in the same building. I think I was taken advantage of because I was desperate to find somewhere at the time. I signed a one year lease when moving in and there has been no subsequent lease signed since. If my landlord tries to increase the rent, can I dispute it on the basis that the monthly rent is already way above what it’s worth?
