How do I get my preteen into my house? I recently ..

Question for The Sims FreePlay

How do I get my preteen into my house?
I recently rebuilt a new house on a new lot, then went through the trouble of divorcing my sims to move them into this new house. They remarried and moved in together etc etc. However, their children (including a preteen due to the new update which I love) did not go with them? In fact the map shows that the old house is actually the preteen's house now. How do I get the children to move with their parents so that nobody owns the old house and I can demolish it?

Age them up to a teen and make them good friends with an adult, then move them in.

Is no one still able to answer this question? It's frustrating that the preteen still wants to stay in the old house rather than move in with it's parents.

But if you send them to school they'll go back to the house and this sucks because I know have a empty house with a preteen living in

The only way it works is if the parents get remarried and the spouse moves back in with you

If you have the newest update then you just click the new house and press relocate household

I think that only works if the house has no one living in it

First, build a new house, but it'll only be used for a minute so don't spend all of your money on it. Then press relocate household on it. Choose the family in question, leaving the house you want them to be in empty. Then you press the same button on the house you want them to live in. Relocate your household again and that should solve it! Good luck!

Make a birthday cake, then once that's completed make the preteen and teenager, develop friendship with the adult you want you teen to move in with (doesn't have to be parents) then the move in icon should appear. All the best

I don't think you can until your sim is an adult. Correct me if I'm wrong. I've been trying for ages now, it is really frustrating having a toddler own a house. Went through the trouble of making it a teenager still won't budge. Aghhhhhhhh

Can you see why it isn't good to divorce?
Guest answered:
Added 1st Jan 2016, ID #675304

Get your mum sim and her boyfriend to get married in the preteens house and then hopefully they'll all live in the same house. If that worked then move household to the other house. Hope this helps!

If the parents are divorced and one of them has a new boyfriend/girlfriend you could try having the preteen becoming best friends with them and having them ask the preteen to move in

Ok so I read all the answers and comments I found unless you can age the child into an adult you are unable to get them to move. What I did was have my preteen always hang out at hers dad step mom's place. And then I had my todale always be at her mom's place. As long as you don't make the kids in a really bad so they have to stay at there real house this should work. I'm sorry if you didn't want to here that there is no possible way to move a pre teen or toddler. I am not comp,e try sure if there is no way. I didn't try stuff. Just no this is the best way for me because a I don't waste my time trying to fight with the sims free play

I know it's too late but for next time: when you click on the new house and house options pop up, click on "Relocate household" then choose the family you want to move in.

I had an adult sim living with her parents, then I had her adopt an orphan. Now the child is a preteen and I want to move the mother-daughter-duo into their own house. But I can’t find a way to do that because I can’t separate her daughter from her parents' house. I tried figuring out a way to move her parents in with another sim, but I can’t separate married sims. So I can have the single mom move out, but the rest have to stay together? I know teens can move in with others, but my girl just became a preteen and I don’t want to speed up her aging. The only solution I can think of is divorcing the parents, having them move in with someone, moving the mother & daughter into their home, and remarrying the parents and having them move back home. It'll cost me but I think it’s the only way it’ll work.
