To become the Thane of Hjaalmarch, the Dragonborn must begin the quest "Laid to Rest" by investigating the burned down house, as well as completing the subsequent quests. The Jarl (Idgrod Ravencrone by default, or Sorli the Builder if the Dragonborn has sided with the Stormcloaks during the Civil War) will then offer the title of Thane as long as the Dragonborn undertakes miscellaneous quests to help three different people.
There are multiple ways to assist the people of Hjaalmarch:
|Benor||Fight! Fight!||Morthal||Beat Benor in a brawl.|
|Gestur Rockbreaker||Mine Ore||Stonehills||Gather some iron ore for Gestur Rockbreaker.|
|Gorm||For the Good of Morthal||Morthal / Solitude||Deliver a message from Gorm to Captain Aldis in Solitude.|
|Hroggar||Chop Wood||Morthal||Gather wood for Hroggar.|
|Idgrod the Younger||Delivery||Morthal / Whiterun||Deliver a letter to Danica Pure-Spring at the Temple of Kynareth in Whiterun.|
|Jorgen||Chop Wood||Morthal||Gather wood for Jorgen.|
|Lami||Rare Gifts||Morthal / Radiant||Find a copy of Song of the Alchemists for Lami.|
The title also includes being awarded the Blade of Hjaalmarch.

- If the only reason for becoming Thane is to purchase the land, it is not necessary to finish helping with the three tasks before being allowed to purchase the land. Upon finding and speaking to Aslfur, he may have a dialogue option for buying a house, at which point he will say that while there are no houses available, he can sell some land.HF
