In this manuscript, X-ray and high-resolution neutron powder diffraction investigations, associated with Rietveld refinements, magnetic hysteresis curves and a modeling of electron-density distributions around the ions, are used to describe the driving forces responsible for tuning the ferroic states in La doped (0.6) BiFeO3-(0.4)PbTiO3 compositions. The intrinsic relations between the ferroic orders and the structural arrangements (angles, distances and electron-density distributions around the ions) are revealed, helping in the understanding of some aspects comprising the ferroic properties of perovskite-based displacive multiferroic compounds.
