Helvard is the target to kill in a Dark Brotherhood quest.
This section contains bugs related to Helvard. Before adding a bug to this list, consider the following:
- 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 & 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 "player.setrelationship 19822 2". If it doesn't work, try using "player.setrelationshiprank 19823 3" (Nenya).
