"Being Housecarl of Falkreath is an honor."

  • If Helvard is dead before purchasing the Lakeview Manor plot of land in the Hearthfire DLC, this action will "cancel" out the chance to buy the deed from him or Nenya, even if the Dragonborn is Thane. There is no current fix for this issue. The Dragonborn will have to settle for the other two houses in Hearthfire, making the Land Baron and Master Architect achievements impossible to attain.
  • The property can be bought from Tekla if Helvard is already dead. She can be found in the Jarl's Longhouse.
  • On PC, this can be worked around by changing the relationship rank of Jarl Siddgeir to 2 using the console command player.setrelationship 19822 2. If it does not work, try using player.setrelationshiprank 19823 3" (Nenya).
