That will depend on what, if any, written lease is governing the tenancy. If there is nothing in the written lease that will address this, it is possible that you are a month-to-month tenant. If that is the case, the terms of your tenancy can chance, provided that a proper notice is served. Since you have been there for 3 years, I would hope you’re on good terms with the landlord. I would encourage you to try to work this out amicably. Keep in mind, if you are a month-to-month tenant, either you or the landlord can terminate this lease with a 30 day notice.
As part of a renewal, yes, just as you could ask for changes. Have you asked the landlord why the change? You may not like the answer but at least you'll have one.
