maisons dans lesquelles j'ai vécu : choice of passé composé
Since living in these towns would have been ongoing for periods of time, why not imparfait?
This question relates to:French lesson "Dans lequel / laquelle : alternative to où with places (relative pronouns)"

The fact that there have been several houses means that we know each one had a specific beginning and ending, therefore we need the passé composé.
The "ongoing" rule for the French imperfect means, in essence, "ongoing without a clear beginning or ending."
