My lease states that tenants shall not have guests stay longer than 3 consecutive nights in a one month period. My roommate has had her girlfriend (not on the lease) practically live with us since August. I have notified the apartment managers; they issued a formal lease violation around mid March, but only after bothering them for a month straight. Girlfriend is still here. Complex won't do anything, though I've mentioned it multiple times.
It is up to the LL to enforce its own rules, policies, procedures, regulations, Lease provisions -- or not. You cannot force LL to do so. You can, however, vote with your feet either during the Lease term or at its end. Unfortunately if you leave during the term you will breach the Lease, and may encounter adverse effects to your credit standing, unless you can replace yourself as a tenant and the LL approves.
Which begs the obvious result. Can you engineer a solution whereby GF moves in, you move out, all with LL's consent so your credit is intact?
