I began a new character with patch

I completed the Thieves Guild story line, where Mallus Maccius pledges to me to be a fence for my services. I moved on and became the Guild Master.

Now I am on a side quest to get to "Return the lexicon to Avanchnzel". So I decided to dump some of my gear. But to my surprise, with Mallus there are no dialogue options for a transaction. He says I have developed the brewery by dumping the last of the Honning-Brew mead. But no options for selling.

Before this patch, another character that I played, I was able to fence/sell my stuff just fine with Mallus.

Now I can not.

So far I have been following G.SE on how to avoid known glitches altogether.

If other people have experienced this problem, does some one know how to avoid this glitch for Mallus Maccius?


Neither is Niranye in Windhelm, who should be a fence once you complete the Thieves Guild quest line as well.

At this point I think it is one and only one mod that I have active. When I started this play through with the latest patch (no longer latest since 1.4.27 I think) I had never used a mod. Only subscribed to one on Steam "Dovahkiin Hideout" for the big house, more space etc.

Maybe this is why my usual fences might not be fences. But Golum-Ei still is a fence. Too confused at this point.

Anyone in the gaming community have any problems with this particular mod?
