In Sims 4, you can earn enough money to move your family into a big, expensive, and beautiful house, but what if your desired property is already occupied by another family?
The easiest option is to evict the family from the residential lot, the old house remains as they left it, and you will be able to move your family into that house. Evict is a good option because you don’t have to buy and redecorate the entire property when you move a new family in.
Below are the detailed steps for how to evict a household from an occupied residential lot in Sims 4.
Step 1: Open the menu by clicking on the three dots located in the top-right corner or press the ESC key to display the main menu.
Step 2: Go to Manage Worlds.
Step 3: Open the World Map.
Step 4: Select the active household that you would like to evict.
Step 5: Click on the house.
Step 6: Click on the three dots in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
Step 7: Click on the house icon with an X mark in the middle to evict the household.
Step 8: You will be asked if you want to evict the household, just accept it.
The family you evicted can be found in the Household Management menu, and you can move that family into another new house if you want.
Follow the below steps to move the family you evicted to another lot:
Step 1: Click on the Manage Households icon.
Step 2: Find the family in the Other households tab and click on it.
Step 3: Click on the moving truck icon to move in the family.
Step 4: Choose the lot.
Step 5: Click on the truck in the bottom-right corner to confirm.
This is the way how to evict a household in Sims 4.

Select any neighborhood or residential lot, and click the large button in the bottom-right corner with a moving truck icon. If the residential lot is already occupied, you’ll be prompted whether you want to evict the family and take their lot, or merge your current family with the target family.
If you evict the family (or if you’re choosing an unoccupied residential lot), your current family must be able to afford it. If you’re merging families, doing so will go through immediately. Once you confirm the move, it will be done immediately.
