How Many Units Can You Have on Lot in Sims 4 For Rent?

The maximum unit limit for The Sims 4 For Rent is six, but you can utilize cheats to expand its range. Once you go past the limit with your households, you won’t be able to interact with the ‘+Create Unit’ button. However, families are permitted to have an abundance of rooms around the lot, including Shared areas.

Now, if we’re talking about the entirety of your Sims 4 file, you can expect a 99 maximum limit per save. Almost any world will work with the new For Rent features except for the following locations:

  • Sulani Waterfront Lot
  • Penthouse Lots
  • Vacation Worlds and Hidden Lots (Jungle Adventure, Batuu, Outdoor Retreat)

Although the units can’t be placed in these worlds, there’s more than enough room to establish an entire multi-family empire on the various maps. You may also want to consider the size of each family’s housing, given that the rating can be affected by smaller spaces.

I tested out the Sims 4 For Rent unit size cheat myself, and there doesn’t seem to be a limit on how many households you can place. Though, you may run into performance issues if you place too many Sims on one lot.

To deactivate the unit cheat, you must enter ‘bb.increaserentalunitcap off’ in the chat box.
