[NEEDS INPUT] [DU] Unable to reclaim owned University books left behind

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
What is your current game version number? (64 bit)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? EXPANSION: Island Living, Get Famous, Seasons, Cats & Dogs, City Living, Get Together, Get to Work, Island Living, Discover University Game: Strangerville, Jungle Adventure, Parenthood, Vampires, Dine Out, Spa Day, Outdoor Retreat, Realm of Magic STUFF: Moschino, Bowling Night, Vintage Glamour, Kids Room, Romantic Garden, Movie Hangout, Spooky, Cool Kitchen, Perfect Patio, Luxury Party FREE: Holiday Celebration, Ghoulish Guitar
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Leave an owned item (specifically University books) behind on a lot and return to pick it back up.
What happens when the bug occurs? When you return to grab your forgotten item, there is not an option to pick the item up or put it in your inventory. The info bubble states that the item is not owned by the sim and it cannot be added to sim inventory. I have only noticed this with university books because I keep forgetting them on tables at the uni bar, but I haven’t tried it on other lots or with other items.
What do you expect to see? I expect to be able to reclaim owned items that have been forgotten on other lots.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. This has been happening with books since I installed University Living.

PS4: (64 bit)

@Rae_Regenbogen Changed this to books for now as you said you only noticed it with uni books.

Happy Gaming
