Bug - Lakeview Manor[edit]

If anyone encounters the bug regarding purchasing land for Lakeview Manor, please post some additional information here. Did you complete the quest before or after installing Hearthfire? Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin? Tingz0r (talk) 01:25, 3 November 2012 (GMT)

I'm pretty sure I have that bug. Nenya will not offer me the land. I completed the Kill Helvard quest long before installing Hearthfire. And, I'm not sure I can uninstall the plug-in?--I'm on Xbox. If there's a way to do it, please advise. Thanks. Oshaugm (talk) 11:56, 26 November 2012 (GMT)
The issue is caused by Relationship Rank changes, so I'm not sure that uninstalling and reinstalling would actually help. You have to have a relationship of at least 3 with the jarl of the hold to purchase the homestead, and completing Kill Helvard lowers the relationship rank with Siddgeir. So you must either raise his disposition somehow or cause Dengeir of Stuhn to become jarl (through civil war choices) and buy it from him. — ABCface 14:09, 26 November 2012 (GMT)
I ran into this. I'm on PC and had Hearthfire installed when I started this character. I don't know if it's necessarily a bug or not (I killed Helvard, so he is rightfully not happy with me), but it happened to me. I completed the entire Dark Brotherhood quest line. Then I decided I would try out Hearthfire later on and decided on Lakeview Manor. I had a quest to speak to the Jarl of Falkreath. I think it was from a letter from a courier. I spoke to the Jarl, but he was quite rude and there was no option to speak of the letter he sent me. I guess he was rude because I killed Helvard, which is reasonable. The only thing that's not reasonable about it is that I did it secretly in stealth (no bounty), so technically they shouldn't know it was me that did it. Anyway, I checked the relationship with the console and it was -2. I set it to +1 and now I had the ability to speak to the Jarl about the letter I received from him. He sent me to kill the bandit leader in Embershard mine near the standing stones. I did that, went back, and he said that I can now purchase property and offered to make me thane if I assist 3 people in Falkreath. I guess you need a positive relationship rank with him to talk about the courier letter and proceed normally. I checked this page to see if there was mention that doing this quest could make it difficult or impossible to buy Lakeview Manor. Glad to see it's on there. --Ignotus (talk) 00:52, 4 April 2013 (GMT)
