When i have a large number of SIMS in my legacy house i tend to ignore half of them especially spares.
I used to feel guilty about throwing anyone out of the house but now its a case of get out and stay out.
Its the elders that get in the way for me my current heir is just 86 and she has her son his wife and three kiddies living with her plus her teenage son (menopause baby)
All she does is wake up in the middle of the night chat to all the ghosts then sleep all day. I cant kick her out because she is the heir and isnt there a rule about heirs dying in the house.
Whats the betting she lives for days and days too  ;)

Samoht, how did you get them to move in with the grandparents?

Elders + running bug makes for spry gardeners. My elder would wake from the farthest bedroom room and be first to arrive to help crying babies in the night.

I don't think there's a rule that heirs HAVE to stay in the house till they die, but mine usually do.  Elders are awesome for cleaning, gardening, child care, tutoring, or money making activities like painting. 

When I have a full house of sims I usually only control the ones that still have LTW's to accomplish, and occasionally I'll send a spare or elder off to an activity that needs to be done.  But mostly they just have a lot of free time to do whatever they like.  :)

The only rule about family members is no known rich sims should move in and the main family must stay on that lot the whole duration of the legacy.

I thought rich sims were fair game, just not for the founder.   ???

My second generation heir married a rich SIM she only bought 1600 to the house. Whereas my first generation spouse, Christopher Steel (the legacy spouse in so many legacies) was considered not rich yet brought 5000 into the house.
I think sometimes rich can be relative depending on how many other SIMS live in the prospective spouses` house.
That so made sense in my head

Oh yeah,  :-[ I forgot that that was only for the founder.  :-X

Yeah you only find out if a sim is rich if you visit their home.

Exactly. However, I had one of my sims (non-legacy) marry a rich sim. The sim, like the one you are talking about, only brought a thousand-something into the family...however, I checked his inventory and he had the most expensive car you can get in it that I was able to sell for $94,000. So I think it's not about how much money they have, it's about what they own.

What are the rules regarding children leaving the lot with family members? I tried numerous times to have the uncle take his niece fishing at the beach behind the SV legacy lot, but although she wanted to fish, she wouldn't leave the lot with him. He lived there with her at that time.

I think if you click on the place you want to go there is an option to take other people with you.

A quite funny thing happened with my legacy, i was playing and i mentioned to the husband that i was glad that a certain Sim was only a spare and not an heir as i thought he might be gay and therefore would not reproduce and bloodline heirs. Husband said your mad woman how can a computer generated person be gay.
I kicked said Sim out as a teen with his elderly mum. I checked on the family tree a day or two later and he is now living with his life partner Dusty.
Just like to add that i never let this Sim have any romantic relationships at all before i kicked him out.

That's what I did. She wanted to go but then didn't. Three times. I wondered if there's a rule about leaving the property with someone other than parents.

I'm assuming you mean that Dusty is male? I think all sims are bisexual in order to let the player direct them either way. Without direction, I'm sure there's an element of randomness. Having said that, I think my legacy teen is gay too, but that just might be because of the feminine hairstyle of the boy who followed him home. If I choose his sister to be heir, I'll let him choose his own partner too.

Could the child not go fishing on their own.
I just thought it was funny that i had told my husband that this particular Sim was gay when he was a child(the Sim not my husband) and i was right.
I am a bit pathetic that i find the lives of my evicted Sims to be interesting i get feelings of guilt if any of my spares dont find people to spend their little Sim lives with.

My probable 3rd gen heir is scoping out her possible mates. Some have traits I've never played or in combinations that sound wild. Do any of these shout "marry this guy?" Fiona Bright has 8 days before she becomes YA. She's Neurotic, Born Saleswoman, Friendly, and Family Oriented. I think I'll make her a painter or a sculptor. There's a housing boom in SV, so new people may yet move in.

Herman Bean sounds wonderful, but he's already YA: Green Thumb, Virtuoso, Loves the Outdoors. But he wears a peter pan collar.

Scotty Bean must be Herman's brother, sounds like it's a good family, and he's a teenager like Fiona. I don't know his traits yet.

Tam Thrasher, a light-skinned teen who wears Egypt clothes to school. He's Grumpy, Evil, and Neurotic. I almost want to choose him to shake things up, but I've never had Grumpy, and certainly not this combination. Making him happy might be too much work.

Chin-Han Lim, a teen who's Childish, Insane, Good, and a Mooch. He might drive me insane with the Childish trait.

Marquis Ursine, a teen who I'm inclined to ignore because of his family, but I guess I'll check out his traits.

Children cannot leave the lot alone after their curfew.  After hearing that the uncle couldn't take the child fishing, I think it must be only the parents who can take the child from the lot after hours.

I also believe heirs have to live on the Legacy lot their entire lives.  The link to Pinstar's rules isn't working for me at the moment, so I can't be positive.  But I'm fairly certain only spares can be kicked out of the house.  Spouses can be kicked out, too, because they aren't part of the Legacy bloodline.  However, they won't qualify for points if they don't live in the house.

I can't kick him out now. I've spent his 50K happiness on a Food Replicator for the family.

You can still kick him out unless he's the heir.  The Food Replicator will stay on your lot.
