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 

Some of the builds have platforms raised only 1or two levels. Don’t know if that has anything to do with it  Though.

I had the same thing happen. I started deleting everything and the shadows only disappeared when I removed the staircase I had on a platform. I removed the platform and put the stairs back and no more shadow problems. There is definitely some kind of lighting bug related to stairs and platforms.

Same problem here. I had a few precisions, so I filled out the information as well. The picture files I wanted to upload are too large, but I uploaded my current problematic WiP lot to the gallery.

How often does the bug occur? Unsure. It seems to happen all the time with the right criteria?
What is your current game version number? 1.80.69.1030
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Everything except kits
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Build a platform as the ground floor and build a staircase to the floor above to a large enough room that it encompasses some walls of the room below. A simmer on the forums helped me figure it out and made this video explaining it as well as temporary "fixes" that may work for some builds (turning walls into half-walls that are short enough or building a high-enough platform on the upper floor as well) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCbrAUgfx8g 
What happens when the bug occurs? If there are walls on the ground floor under the second-floor room that the stairs lead to, there will be shadows where the ground floor walls are. Here is a link to the lot on which I found this problem, which I uploaded to the gallery : https://ea.com/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc/gallery/1F17B2A81E0611EC88DD7DB6A3FFB678?category=all&se...
