question clarification

The core issue seems to be the fact that the managing agent knew full well that not "ONLY PERSONS NAMED ON THIS LEASE" would live there. Shouldn't that make that section void? Or like a no pet clause...openly and notoriously having roommmates for a certain length of time makes them allowed?

Fact of the matter is, it's a 3BR apt. (the LL doesn't want more people on the lease b/c there's very likely an overcharge case coming and the more people suing her/being entitles to this (probably) RS apt. the worse) so it's either roommates or a family, and this apt. is not safe for children. No one would live here with fewer people b/c for the same money they could get a better 1-2 BR in a better neighborhood.

Furthermore - not that it really pertains to the question but there are all manner of violations in the building and sketchy details in the apt. (like holes in the wall where electrical sockets were pulled out, a hole through the floor next to a radiator, and a floor that would give you splinters if you walked on it barefoot)

Anyone know anything about the first question though?
