Game thinks sims house is a rental

What is your current game version number? 1.72.28.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get to Work, Get Together, City Living, Seasons, Snowy Escape, Spa Day, Vampires, Luxury Party, Tiny Living
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I moved my household into a lot that was a rental previously and now the game still thinks it is a rental, but in manage households, it shows that the family live there. By moving a household into a real lot to live.
What happens when the bug occurs? Lot still shows as a rental in manage worlds despite family living there. When I click the lot to play it doesn't have a play button to start playing the household there. When I enter build mode on the lot to see if there is a problem with the lot traits i can fix, the game will visit the lot but glitches and won't enter build mode.
What do you expect to see? The play button to play household on the lot and for it to then be playable. And when I enter build mode from manage world for me to be able to enter build mode.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.

@scarletmeerkat What do you mean by glitches ? What happens when you enter build mode.

Sounds a bit like this issue: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/WORKAROUND-Residential-lot-becomes-unchangeable-rental-lot/td-... but that lets you enter build mode with no issues

Household unplayable?

★★★ Newbie

So I downloaded the newest patch/update (May 29th, 2021 - PST) and it has currently broken my main save. I'm wondering if there's not other issues with the location I chose for my sims, the household and save being named "Yume no Hana" as I did share the household to the gallery since I thought it would be interesting to have three occult sister sims living in Mt. Komorebi, because when I downloaded Dine Out it outright refused to let me buy anything in the Buy Mode. My friend told me how iffy the pack was but that it would be fun and I'm still currently having that issue despite having reinstalled the whole game except for Dine Out and then downloading it but disabling it thanks to James Turners' website.

 

But I'm going off script, that's another issue for another day. All I know is that when I booted up the game last night (current date as of writing this message being May 30th, 2021) I found out about this bug but had to do something else for a couple hours so I was unable to properly try to figure out what was wrong.. I have yet to see if my other save is affected as well but here's a poorly captured picture of it that I posted from my phone onto Discord when I let my friends know about the issue. As stated before, I do have a household of three sims living in that one place but I changed the lot from a Rental to Residential.. So this really confuses me and I'm worried that I'd have to reinstall the game again..

I had the exact same problem. My screen eventually went black but there was a flashing bar at the top that had “textField”
