I was wondering if i placed a house, would it be possible to allow the other char's from my account access? Is this something that happens by default when you put down a house or is it accessable only by the one char that placed it?

Thanks

house ownership is by account, not by character.

Even though they aren't on the house sign, all characters on the house owners account are considered to be the owner.

Is there anyway to change the name of the owner on the house sign? Like lets say the house sign owner is my first character, and I want to change it to my latest character?

If you have 2 accounts, or someone you trust - you can trade the house, then trade it back to a different character on your account.

NOTE: You may only take ownership of a house once per week.

You can also use the plot resize command - whichever character replots the house will have their name on the house sign. BE SURE to read up on how this command works in depth before attempting. It is a whole lot safer to use the 2 account swapping method Corvak mentioned above.

I would most certainly do your homework on this one. I had 2 houses side by side, dropped one so I could resize the 18x18 to a tower. After doign so I got a gump that kept saying "Houses cannot be created in this area." (SW of luna gate, Westborough Edition) I was only able to get a small house in the same spot that held an 18x18 and about a 14x14 side by side. Im glad it happened though I found a much better location that I love! I too would like to change one of my houses owner names but after that headache I will just deal with it.=)

I prefer it because it makes moving easier. With resize, you must empty your house prior to using the command, and without a second account and second house, this is awkward once you amass a lot of stuff.

I've always wondered why they added this command, it's usefulness seems very, very limited and quite risky otherwise. Too bad they just hadn't made the house sign into a contextual menu where you could choose which char to display on it.
