This is a cloned deed to function as residential deed which allows you to play tenant and landlord on residential lot. Landlord will buy the lot and the tenant will rent that lot. This object is available in buy mode misc.

Can this be done?

Thanks,

Options and Descriptions:
View = allows to view lot info, who's the owner and lot value.
Set Me the Owner = allows you to set up the active sim to be the owner of the lot.
Transfer Ownership to.../Sims = to transfer ownership to family member.
Sell This Lot ($lot value) = option is available to present owner which allows you to sell ownership to other sims who are not living on current lot. Afer you sell it "Deed" will automatically disappear and will be transported to buyer's inventory.
Buy This Lot ($lot value) = buy ownership of the lot.
Term of Payment (Weekly/Daily) = option is available to owner which allows you to set up term of payment of tenant. Weekly is every Wednesday (12:00PM) and Daily is every 12:00PM.
Rental Fee (By Percentage/By Amount) = as requested above. Amount to be paid by tenant.

Just like in my child support mod, there is also a tracking of behind payments, if the tenant is broke, the landlord will still receive of payment from "nowhere" and that amount will be charged as credit account of tenant. And on every Tuesday that amount (equal of less than 10,000) will be added to bills. And in tenant's pie menus you will see "Lot Rental fee" option, for viewing/paying of behind payments.

How to start and play tenant and landlord:
1. Buy this object in buy mode (misc) and click on "Set Me the Owner", this will set the active sim the first owner of the lot.
2. Click on this object again and choose "Sell This Lot", a menu of neighbor will appear. Choose your buyer (landlord) then the amount in specified in lot value will be deducted in buyer's family fund and will be added to your family fund and this object (residential deed) will be transported to buyer's inventory. Save and exit to neighborhood screen.
3. Play the buyer's lot (landlord), check his inventory and set up term of payment and rental fee.
4. You're done. If you are playing landlord's house you will automatically receive a rental fee from your tenant depends on your set up and if you're playing tenant's house you will automatically send rental fee to your landlord depends on landlord's set up.
5. There are two ways to sell back ownership to tenant. First is play the landlord's house and click on "sell this lot" and second is play the tenant's house and buy "Deed" object in buy mode and click on "Buy this Lot".

I know you have a lot of questions but sometimes testing will answer your questions. So, pls help me.

Have fun!


UPDATED: v1.1
- sorry I forgot to remove per hour, I used that for my testing.

UPDATED: v2.0
- Fixed Percentage error.
- Block Home Business lot. You cannot sell a lot that already started a Home Business and if someone owns your lot you cannot start a Home Business this is to avoid resetting of landlord's ownership and messing up with Home Business ownership.

UPDATED: v3.0
- Added option "Transfer Ownership to Neighbor" - allows you to transfer ownership without selling of lot.

UPDATED: v3.1
- Remove Blocking of Home Business, but still you cant sell a lot already started a Home Business.
Note: If you sell or transfer your lot to someone not living on your lot, then you started a home business, lot ownership will be transferred to someone who started a home business and when you shutdown your home business, ownership will reset to nothing (default or normal setup of the game).

UPDATED: v3.2 (Alpha)
- Recoded. If you have an existing Landlord setup, pls do a setup again and expect an "Attributes out of range" error. This is because I added Attributes to funtion as a second storage for your setup to avoid resetting of setup after saving.


NOTE: Pls do not start "Home Business" or do "Make Many..." if you're going to play Tenant and Landlord Mod.


FAQ:
Q: Everytime I set the payment plan, save it, then re-enter the Landlord's lot, it sets back to zero or it sets back to weekly.
A: Please do page#4 post#86 on tenant's house.

UNINSTALL:
1. Pls return the ownership back to tenants before removing this hack from your Downloads folder.
2. Or in case you forgot to do that, and you already removed this hack from your Downloads folder, play your tenants lot then start Home Business and Shutdown it, this will reset ownership of that lot.

This is just phenomenal. I had no idea anything like this was possible!

But playing this mod makes me feel like I'm playing Monopoly.... Maybe I should make my rental houses look big, red and plastic!

You are all good testers.
I'm taking a note now of all bugs that you will report.
Right now I have these:
1. Wrong computation in percentage. Status = on-going
2. I should block selling of lot with Home Business on. Status = done
3. ????

I have a little or no time playing of Sims because of my present projects (real) and this is the reason why I released it so early for you to be able to help me, I can only edit this at night. So, try to destroy this mod with your test cases that you can think of, such as the owner dies, landlord dies or tenant dies whatever and pls report to me so that I can work on and upload the final version at once. Thank you very much for your time that you will share with me.

Pls. see my journal for my hacks compatibility. Thanks.

hi

This is a fantastic mod, just what I've been waiting for. Thank you.

I do have one question if anyone who has tested out the mod or the creator of the mod could answer it for me.

Does the money get deducted only if you are playing Landlord's house, or both? It's just that when I play tenants house, no money is deducted. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance

Both. Pls check your term of payment in landlord's house, default is Weekly (Wednesday 12:00PM) and 5%. Pls do more testing and try with other tenants too. Thanks.



I uploaded v2.0.Thanks to all who tested and reported it.

Default So They Stay Poor
I use the simlogical mortgage shrub. I plant them on the property then move the poor sim in for a low low amount. then I sell the shrub putting the sim into the negative. Then I have them transfer the deed and then they have back the money they put in only. Then I send the Down payment Via Money Order. So far it works but I haven't played till a wednesday so I will tonight.

I love the idea and it would come in handy when I move a poor family in with a rich one, the rich can then rent his/her house to the poor ones and move out.
What I would like to know though is can an owner of a community lot sell it to another Sim, I have a bloke with a cake shop, but he has only two cooking points, while his mother has 9, how can he sell the business to her, is it possible with this hack, I took him to his shop but the "Deed" doesn't show up in any buy menue.

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

Lovemysims, great idea...but it seems to me that it would be better if Monique could take out the part where the tenant GETS money when they give (sell) the deed to the Landlord.

Monique, could you set this up so the tenant stays poor and does not get money from the sale of a house that they did not really "buy" but are only "renting"?

Thank you...

To sell a community lot, the owner has to put the lot up for sale, using the for sale tool. Then take the sim you want to buy the lot there and have them buy it. That is how all my sim's buy their lots from the Mayor of my hood.
