Live In Services

You can hire two Live In Nannies, two Live In Maids, two Live In Gardener and/or two Ranch Hands

The Mod is based on a Lot Trait which needs to get added via Build Buy. This Lot Trait will let Live In Services spawn on their own.

You’ll find new a new Option on Phones under the Household Menu called “Live in Service” which opens a new Pop Up Menu with the Options to:

  • Hire Live In Nanny
  • Hire Live In Maid
  • Hire Live In Gardener
  • Hire Live in Ranch Hand

The Options to hire the second Live In Services gets useable as soon as the first Live In Service is hired. 

You can cancel each Live In Service via the same Pop Up Menu.

You can choose the NPC you want to hire. Sims you want to hire need to fullfil the following requirements: Has no Career or the needed Job Career for example Nanny, Is homeless, not a Vampire who is not sunimmun, not famous.

You need to assign them a Bed so they can go to sleep. 

I adjusted the Behaviour of those Services a bit so they will do their Job but they will not act like lifeless robots when nothing is to do in the House/Garden.

On the Sims themself you’ll find a new “Live In Services” Pie Menu with the Options:

  • Give Tip 100$
  • Plan Outfit (Loads the Sim in CAS to change their normal Outfits)
  • Go to Sleep (They’ll get a push to go to sleep )

On the Ground you’ll find a new Option when leaves are lying around:

  • Rake Leaves
    Pick a Live In Service (Maid or Gardener) to rake the leaves

I highly recommend the Better Nanny Mod to use with Live In Nannies! (The Main Mod File)


If you add the Lot Trait to other Lots like your Business or your Holiday Home Live in Service NPCs should “follow” you and work there as well.

Recommended Mods:

Better Nanny - which edits the Behaviour of Nannies



The Game does not recognize any other Nanny as a real Nanny then the Original one. Leaving the Lot will still let you choose to go to Daycare. You can check out my “Toddler Don’t go to Daycare” Mod in the Random small Mods Collection for this purpose.
