I sided with the Stormcloaks and Jarl Dengeir is on the throne. He made me his thane and gave me a housecarl, but his steward will not offer to sell the land. Does anyone know what I need to do or what I'm missing? Because I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.

  • I believe you might need to speak to the Jarl again to get the house, or do one or more quests for him – Ben Dec 30 '14 at 5:16
  • I am already thane and neither him or his steward offer any more missions – the sargent Dec 30 '14 at 7:37
  • Does anybody know what to do or has anybody else had this problem before – the sargent Dec 30 '14 at 18:04
  • What system are you playing on? If PC, there might be some command console wizardry to correct this. – Trent Hawkins Jan 1 '15 at 20:32

The only possible solution is to wait for a few days or reload any save.

    He's already a thane, Putting Dengeir on the throne is supposed to be enough to thane-ship and thus able to purchase land from the steward... – Trent Hawkins Jan 1 '15 at 20:34
