Need advice on rent increase

Have been living in our house for 2 years with a contract and no increases. Our lease was up in July and our landlady informed us today that our rent would be going up 33%. Is there any recourse for such a high increase?

We have told her we will move if the increase is higher than 16%. We had heard a while ago that increases could not be higher than 10%.

Does anyone have any advice or know what authority we could contact about our rights as renters?
