Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.70.84.1020

What happens when the bug occurs? spectres,creepy dolls, slime puddles, and occult symbols all appear in the hallway between apartments, however the door to the apartment disappears and there is no "knock on door" option so the sim cannot enter the apartment and can only deal with the occult stuff in the hall, making expert level gigs nearly impossible to complete
What do you expect to see? The door to the apartment in hall, and when I click on it, a "knock on door" option with the paranormal investigator symbol on it
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.

I'm having the same issue on my Sim's first mission! I'm glad that you mentioned that the missing door is the apartment that the mission is supposed to happen in, otherwise I would have completely given up. I switched the walls down and back up to full wall height and the door came back and I was able to get in by knocking.

I got sent to the apartment at 1312 21 Chic Street (Penny Pizzazz) and had no problem with the door, so it might be limited to the Jasmine Suites. Nice to know that lowering and raising the walls might be enough to fix it.

@yaz12345 Looks like this report: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-Issues-PC/Apartments-not-loading/m-p/10004654

Would be interesting to know if it only happens on the job or is a more general issue.

Weird, that didn't work for me. I spent the whole job just in the hall hoping enough spawned there to finish the job. There was also a creepy doll in the room housing the lift that I couldn't access, so that was frustrating!

@yaz12345 If you go back after the job, are the doors still missing ? What about the windows ?

Haunted Apartment Bug

★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? 1.70.84.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? investigate a haunted apartment in the Paranormal Investigator career
What happens when the bug occurs? The apartment doors disappear and you can't get in
What do you expect to see? Apartment with a door to knock on
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

When in the paranormal career and you have to investigate a haunted apartment the door to the apartment is gone and the apartment is empty.  If you transport your sim into the apartment it stays empty and your sim is invisible.  All the seances have to be done in the hallway which is annoying cause its narrow and a lot of times the sim tries to escape out the elevator

I'm having the same issue as well! I thought it was just me playing for too long until I reloaded the game to find the same problems. I just started to write up a bug report when I saw you were having the same problems. Hopefully this can get fixed soon, my Sim is doing terrible in her paranormal career because she can't get inside.
