Your best bet would be to pop the trait onto your sims lot and experience it that way. All traits can easily be removed in build mode if you do not like them. The Sims 4 Lot and Apartment Traits (Base Game/City Living) (5)
Other than that maybe just google and see what you come up with. There isn't much more that can be said about it really, the screen shakes and your sim will react and get a moodlet.

The camera shakes when there's an earthquake, and your sims sometimes get a Tense seismophobia moodlet. (Or not if they're Carefree)

Hey I wonder if there's a cheat to be able to remove those "special" lot traits, I'm in a Needs TLC apartment which was fun when my sim was a bit poorer etc but I've fully upgraded the house and things still break + rat and cockroaches still spawn but I really like that apartment I just wanna get rid of that trait.

Maybe a modder will come up with a solution for that but no one has so far, early days though I guess seeing as City Living has only been out for a week.

If you press bulldoze lot, yes it deletes all rooms and items in the lot it does also remove all traits. The Sims 4 Lot and Apartment Traits (Base Game/City Living) (14) i hope this works

I'm pretty sure you'll only gets the rats or roaches to show up if your lot has the 'Needs TLC' trait which is only on certain apartments & can't be added or removed. As far as the gremlins, as long as you put that trait on the lot, I would expect you to notice before too much time passes (though they come out at night only & your sims must be sleeping).

Anyone have any idea how I can move a cockroach spawner? I am using a redesigned apartment from the gallery and there is a cockroach and a bad odor spawner right under two walls. Which means every time it generates roaches or bad odors, I have to go into build mode and remove the wall, go back to play mode, take care of the problem and then put my walls back. I really love this apt, but this is getting old...

I had exactly the same problem with my apartment! Moving the wall was driving me a little demented!
There is a mod that allows you to place these spawners on any lot and a link to the debug enabler mod/cheat that allows you to destroy them. I have not had a chance to play around with this so use them at your own risk!!! Make a back up of your save first. The Sims 4 Lot and Apartment Traits (Base Game/City Living) (25)

I just launched the game for the first time since this update and I can only see 8 available traits for my house.
Are most of them from DLC, do they unlock or is it just a glitch?

Yes, only some were patched in for free. The rest are available with the DLC expansion pack City Living.

Travel away from the apartment lot and back. That normally is enough to fix it. You may also need to click on the lights and turn them all back on.

I'm not sure what might be written in a guide. The Sims 4 Lot and Apartment Traits (Base Game/City Living) (38) Basically you can knock on their door and they will come out to talk or you can travel to their apartment and visit just like any other lot. The only other function is the noise aspect but seeing all you do is ignore them or bang on the neighbors door and angrily complain it doesn't really need a guide. I do like the neighbors in apartments, they are done pretty well and give a nice city-life kind of feel to the game.

Some information regarding the Cursed and Gremlins lot traits - I have been playing a house with both of these traits, as well as Needs TLC, to experience some really tough Lot Traits. I hope this information helps someone else looking to try these out.
Cursed causes debuffs similar to those caused if a Sim is targeted by a Voodoo Doll: +2 Dazed and +2 Angry are the two that appear most frequently. I find that they usually appear when the Sim returns to the home lot after travelling elsewhere, or when loading into the lot.
Gremlins is very severe - 'Stuff breaks here a lot' is an understatement. From what I have experienced, the damage happens overnight (between 12am and 2am most frequently), and only if all Sims on the lot are asleep. You do not see the Gremlins, but they break everything that can be broken, all at once. Everything. Fantastic if you want to level your Handiness Skill, but otherwise, can become incredibly stressful. A list of the items on my lot that would all simultaneously break: Computer, TV, Game Console, Radio, Fridge, Dishwasher, Kitchen Sink, Stove, Tea Brewer, Toilet, Bathroom Sink, Shower, Bath. I have had the Gremlins visit 2 or 3 nights in a row, as long as everyone was sleeping, and even if some items are still broken, they will break everything you fixed. I had no idea how bad this trait would be when I decided to use it, and I am still testing. I want to see if the Gremlins will break items with the Unbreakable upgrade.
Again, I hope this information is helpful.

Wow. I just got the EP a few days ago, I'm really digging it. Especially these lot traits. Now I know what they do and what don't. I can't wait for a mod that lets me to put on more than 3 lot traits, they're not enough. The Sims 4 Lot and Apartment Traits (Base Game/City Living) (43)

I've found putting someone who works nights in a gremlins lot (i had a criminal in there) meant i had far fewer breakdowns.
Just had a new sim move in, two repairmen have died fixing items while my sim was asleep within days of each other.
I'm trying to combine a gremlins and a gnomes lot trait now to see what will happen!

Gnomes will fix everything gremlins break, so your sim(s) will just have a lot of mopping in the morning, nothing else

Some lot traits came with certain expansion pack. If you can't see them in the menu picker when in build mode then you won't have the expansion pack it came with. I think ley line came with City Living or perhaps Vampires. So many lot traits have been added now I really can't remember which pack added what!

I've heard that once your sim is good friends with another sim, they can give them an apartment key. For the sake of creating a mod, is there an "apartment key" object? I need to copy the tuning file from the apartment key to apply it to a custom object.

Firstly I love your guides, they are always my go-to for Sims info, so keep up the great work, you're legends!! I wanted to know if anyone has worked out what, if any of the lot traits affect the Eco Lifestyle skills? Does Home Studio affect the quality of fabricated/candles? Happy Simming
