"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."
―Dragonborn's journal

    • Sounds like you're not a high enough level. Grind a bit- there's a bunch of quests in Markarth to take up your time- and then come back.

    • I believe he's set to appear on your second entrance into Markarth. This isn't fact, just based on my 2000+ hours of playing the game (Markarth...
    • i think on second time you enter markarth  just go out the gate go to other city and get back and he's there
