"Take care of the house while I'm gone. Ha ha ha!"
―Molag Bal

The Abandoned House in Markarth is a seemingly uninhabited and empty home which the Vigilants of Stendarr believe is being used for Daedra worship. A Vigilant will be asking passers-by for their assistance in investigating the house.


After completion of The House of Horrors, it appears the house can be used as a free alternative home.

There are numerous chests and containers, an unowned bed, as well as services available close by at the entrance to Markarth. It appears that the chests and dressers inside the house do not respawn items, however barrels seem to eventually respawn items - so it is advised to be careful storing items in barrels in the house.

The Dragonborn cannot have a spouse live in this house, as it is technically unowned.


The House of HorrorsEdit

"I have met Molag Bal, the Lord of Domination. He has asked me to cleanse his altar in the abandoned house in Markarth by luring a priest of Boethiah to him."
―Dragonborns journal
