Can I use this suspended house for storage, or is this a loophole in the LotRO housing strategy? What happens to a house if an account is no longer active because they're not paying Turbine the fees to keep playing?

    As long as someone's paying the rent, the house can still be used, at least in my experience. And if you have all permissions, you can use the storage of the house.

    If you have a kin and a kin house, if you change the name of the kin does it affect your house other than who it is owned by?

    Nope. Your kin house will now proudly display the rebranded name of your kin. So much better than real life. You do not have to buy new signs and pay to have them installed.

    Re: Housing FAQ

    I searched through this thread (and a few other guides) and one piece of info seems to be missing... just how much IS the neighborhood vendor discount for owning a house, deluxe house or kinship house?

    Standard house - 10%
    Kinship house - !5%
    Deluxe house - 20%

    No stacking. You get the largest.

    One of my accounts I have a standard home in the kinship racial housing complex. Different neighborhood. I get 15%.

    My other account has a deluxe home in the kinship racial housing complex. Different neighborhood. I get 20%.

    All three homes are in Duillond - elf houses. In three different neighborhoods or instances. Both of my homes are near the vault, vendors and exit.

    Re: Housing FAQ

    Is the fact that your alts (the other characters on your account that didn't "buy" the house) won't get the return to house skill still true even today?

    I seem to have heard otherwise... or maybe people were implying otherwise. But I could be wrong.

    All your alts get the return to house skill now.

    I found a different house that I really want. Is it possible to give up the house i currently have in order to get the other house?

    Yes! If you have owned the house you want to get rid of for 24 hours or more, you may abandon it and purchase another house immediately. They just make you wait 24 hours after purchasing a house, to purchase another one. So once you buy the new one, if you wanted a different one after that you wouldn't be able to purchase another one for 24 hours.

    How do you abandon a house?

    While standing at the house you want to abandon, you can go into your housing tab, and there is a button that says abandon.

    I think also if you purchase another house, it will buy it and automatically abandon the previous one. But I am not 100% sure.

    Would you get a refund though on the house you are abandoning? Say you eventually want to leave your normal house and get a deluxe one, would you get the amount you paid for your normal house back or applied to your new house?

    I would be interested in knowing this also.

    No, you only get the money back you had in escrow. Sorry

    Re: Housing FAQ

    Have the housing prices changed since the start of this thread, which I believe was three years ago? I read through about half the entire thread and didn't see a mention of it.

    Re: Housing FAQ

    House prices are still the same! They have a slight variation depending on the location inside the homestead, but these are generally the price.

    Re: Housing FAQ

    What's the use of having a house at all if you can only have one house per account? That's nice for one character, I suppose, but not if you have many characters.

    Re: Housing FAQ

    Are we allowed to own a personal house as well as be a member of a Kinship and have a Kin house on an F2P account (or any account for that matter)?

    Also, not allowing alts to use "return to house" is a pretty severe deal-breaker for me.

    A clarification, please: does "one house per account" mean that you have to choose the one server as your main, and not have houses on any other server?

    You can buy one house per server per account. The character who buys the house is the "owner" but all of your characters have equal access to it. The only thing special about the "owner" character is that if that character is deleted, the house will be lost as well. In addition, you can give characters belonging to other accounts access to your house if you wish.

    You can own both a personal has and a kin house on the same account/server. A character can own both a personal house and a kin house (if the leader of a kin). I don't know if F2P players have special restrictions. I don't think they do but you do have to remove the money cap if you wish to buy a deluxe or kin house.

    All of your alts will automatically get the "return to house" skill. You can have one personal house per server.


    Note this FAQ is obsolete. Housing has changed quite a bit since the last time it was updated.

    Question Re: Housing FAQ

    Sorry please now ignore this post.

    I have gone ahead and bought a house now, so answers to the question I asked are no longer necessary.

    Re: Housing FAQ

    Did a search for "upkeep" on this thread and nothing came up, so I will ask the question. How often do you have to pay upkeep? Is it taken out automatically from your wallet or is there someone you have to pay at a specific time/location?

    Pay upkeep once a week, and you can pay six weeks in advance.

    Re: Housing FAQ

    Work benches forges and such should be available to kinship housing at least. This would promote more kinship meetings. As it is housing is pretty much useless other than for a teleport. Why can't we change the fireplace in our house? And why can't you cook in a fireplace like a campfire? The list of things a house could be used for go on and on. Let people put gardens in the from and grow food. Each chest should have separate permissions too.

    Question Re: Housing FAQ

    A question:
    I've bought a kinship house and i have a ceiling that needs a ceiling spot but i just dont see any in the house. Where do i put the ceiling then?
