Possible fix for getting the Falkreath plot

Me like many others didnt get any options to buy or talk to the jarl/steward. But after reading around i found out that there are a couple of quest that blocks you from getting any new conversation with them.

If you have any of the following in your quest list, make sure you complete them and talk to the jarl/steward again. Atleast it worked for me

Getting the book The Mirror for captain Aldis in Solitude

Getting a Mammoth Tusk for Ysolda in Whiterun

Getting the book Song of the Alchemists for Lami in Morthal

Getting the book Night falls on Sentinel for Rustleif in Dawnstar

Getting an Amulet of Arkay for Torbjorn Shatter-Shield in Windhelm

I don't have any of those quests open. That's the problem. Got the other 2 plots by becoming Thane.

I can confirm that you need to do favors for the Jarl in Falkreath to purchase the land, and when I would try to talk to the Jarl, I wouldn't get any options to do quests for him. I did have the Mammoth Tusk quest for Ysolda, so I finished that and went back to the Jarl and his quests appeared. I finished the two quests and was able to buy the land.

Hope that helps.

To be even more clear, his first quest is retrieving one bottle of Black Briar mead from Riften, and the second involved killing Bandits at Bilegulch Mine.

I had the quest to give Ysolda the mammoth tusk in my quest log. Once that was completed I was able to get quests from the Jarl.

I started and completed all of the above mentioned quests and STILL no way to become thane.

Helvard is still alive and the jarl likes me.

I have non of the above quests open and the only one i'm certain i've done is the mammoth tusk one, all i done is a couple of quests for the jarl and and a couple for his elf person (nenys i think!!) and it gave me the option to buy a plot af land.

But that is one of the many glitched quests stuck ing my misc quests that just won't complete. Does that mean I'm screwed for getting the Falkreath plot?

I Figured it out!

So I thought I was stuck like everyone else and read all of these posts and nothing really helped.... So I spent 7 hours doing every side quest I had, once completed I headed to Falkreath and spoke with everyone in the town people started giving me quests and the Jarl that hated me started to like me and eventually gave me the quest to become thane! Now I have the plot of land!!!

HOPE THIS HELPS!!!!

It may help those who weren't already thane, for some reason some of us have been a falkreath thane a long time and upon d-loading the hearthfire dlc have suddenly become unpopular with the jarl even though we've done and re-done every possible falkreath related quest and radiant quest.

with my level 55 Imperial, I never made a choice as imperial or stormcloaks, but I'm an imperial and the replacement Dengeir of Stuhn never gives me the option to buy nor does his steward and I'm and have been Thane , also i did not kill Helvard for the DB nor cant do Ysolda gift quest for mammoth tusk as my speech is too high. , so every few days i go back there and i'll get random quest from the steward but never an option to buy ...Gonna finish Dawnstar as a Vampire Lord and keep at it....

Grats.

Now someone fix mine before my new toon reaches and bypasses the one I've been trying to fix all this time.

P.S. Woot, no longer a "peon"

I only have two glitched quests, Repair the Phail and collect bounty from Skald. I figure its the misc. bounty quest. I'm sure they could fix it by some 'cancelling' mod for the consoles if they wanted just as they fixed the unfixable companion glitches in Fallout New Vegas, but I guess they are just too busy making the upcoming MMOs that the console won't even see the light of day of

Going to just make a new character for this DLC. My level 81 for whatever reason can't do anything in Falkreath. I got the courier message, was told to help people in Falkreath and was already at 1/3 (assuming because of the Daedric quest).

After that, I went outside and did the deliver the ashes quest for Runil... and the counter was still at 1/3. Looked for the farmers to sell veggies to and they were both dead on the ground (no I didn't kill them, guessing the committed suicide after their daughter died or something).

Figure it won't be too bad to make a new character just for Hearthfire. Can crank levels via speech and smithing in the beginning to just dump points in Mercantile. Shame though, would have liked to do all the game on one character.

Unfortunately thats the only way to get the achvmt, I had to do they same. It's the same with all TES and Fallouts, they are glitched to start and when they finally get round to 'patching' them it always only works for a new character but by then you have sunk several hundred hours into the game character and to have to start again is like an insult to the time you have already ploughed into an RPG. I never understood the people who rush the games but do several differant characters.

Absolutely amazing that this quest: Getting the book Night falls on Sentinel for Rustleif in Dawnstar; was keeping me from getting the Thane quests from the jarl in Falkreath.. how does that work?

One word:

"Radiant".

P.S. What works for some doesn't work for others and vice versa, there doesn't appear to be any one single fix or course of action that worts for everyone unfortunately.

I'm having the same issues as everyone here except I can't buy a plot of land in Dawnstar. I've done all the rarity quests the OP said to no avail. The jarl won't let me buy land.

Is it the consensus that you should finish all the jarl quests for every Jarl to get it to work?

Sorry you've not been answered, it looks like the game's going quiet lately.

The item quests didn't help with me either. In fact I've mentioned elsewhere I had 2-3 of those active (or not yet started) and still had no problem buying land and I've had every one of them completed and not been able to buy land so they're not related in my experience. The only thing that "seems" to appear everywhere is an issue handing in or completing some sort of radiant quest but because of the complexity of the system and the ways the various types of quests are connected it's nigh on impossible to work out exactly what's stopping you.

Also ignore any reference to Halvard's (sp?) killing during the DB quests having an effect. Again I've had instances where he's dead and I can buy land in Falkreath and instances where he's alive and I can't. I'm pretty sure that's just a pipe dream.

As I've said before, if you do manage to fix it let us know how
