My LL does not enforce a rule with most tenants as stipulated in the lease. Is this permitted?

You may need to hire a lawyer to send the Property Manager a letter and enlighten her about the law of quiet enjoyment. It is the Landlord's responsibility to enforce their own rules. If they do not, then they are in violation of the lease agreement and the implied warranty of quiet enjoyment.
