I'm on PC.  I will add that each copy of each unit shows the correct tenant but the rent on one unit is the rent I set and the rent on the duplicate units is -$1.  The panel also indicates that I'm getting charged the $50 tax on both the actual units and the fake duplicated units.

I am playing as the Property Owner. I currently have 4 units on my lot. I live in one, so I have three available for rent. When I open the HUD for business owned my property says I have seven units and shows a duplicate of each available unit for rent.

I'm having this but It isn't even doing the rent I set - $108. It's doing $48 on one copy & -$1 on the other.

@PogaeusI have this too. To fix it I went into build mode and "Assign all rooms to this unit" (after I evicted everyone but the owner). Then assign all the units again. It fixed it temporarily but when I reloaded the game the glitch was back. My rent is also messed up because it keeps reverting back to -$1

This was fixed for me by moving all the units into one. Going in to live mode. Save. Go back into build mode and allocate the rental units again.

Had this issue too. Displays incorrectly on sims panel but the lot panel shows the correct number (7). Cannot select tenants after selecting rules/rent (won't progress to the next screen.)

I have purchased one rental residential with two units. I have successfully played and things have behaved as expected. I am able to recreate this issue in my save by purchasing a second rental residential (units already divided.) This shows the duplicate amount of units in the sims panel though displaying the lot info correctly.

I went into manage worlds and set the second lot back to a residential then purchased it, traveled to it and then the residential rental menu wasn't displaying correctly. See photo. First unit name was not auto-filled in as expected and was not able to designate which rooms belong to which unit. It's like the game still thinks it's residential, but half rental residential? No mods installed.

 

I then bulldozed the entire lot and replaced it from my library. Displays correct number of units now. Still cannot select tenants though.

The only way I was able to fix mine was saving my household to the gallery, and moving them to a new save. I think it breaks when you try editing the spaces/rooms/units and which rooms belong to what.

I have had this problem as well. I have tested this may different ways and i think it has to do with switching back and forth from build/buy/live mode, but only when you play as the property owner and live in a unit. I've only had one save where I've been successful in not causing this as a property owner: 

 

1) Playing as property owner, but DID NOT live onsite.

2) only went into build/buy from live mode when i was at an unoccupied unit.

3) build/buy from world screen but ONLY selected through unoccupied unit.

 

 

Should mention rotational play within unit when occupied by owner that was also played, made the units duplicate when returning to owner. Been almost a whole sim season and i have not caused this again. fought through to get my sim the aspiration then sold and rebought. So far have not tried this in the new world, this save and rental were in willow creek.

None of the workarounds worked for me. I couldn't even bulldoze the lot because some unknown Sim "stole"
 it from my Sim (game just changed owners on its own). The new owner is not in the world. Deleting her (as an unplayed Sim) via Household Management didn't change ownership.
