This question already has an answer here:

Every time I talk to jorleif about buying hjerim, there is no dialogue options menu or anything. I have completed the stormcloaks storyline and blood on the ice but nothing. I didn't get a quest to become thane but I don't know if that's a thing or not. I've spent hours trying to fix this but I am unable to get this resolved.

Try waiting for a few hours (in-game), exiting and restarting the game (waiting for real minutes before restarting helps), or reload saves.

  • ive retried reloading saves b4 and completed both questlines twice. ive yet to try the whole wait, exit, restart, wait irl. – MenacingSoul13 Dec 1 '16 at 7:30
