Getting Your Linden Home

Getting your Linden Home


You can get a Linden Home when you sign up for a premium account, upgrade your basic account to premium, or if you already have a premium account and have not claimed your Linden Home yet.




If you have a premium account and you have 512m2 available tier then you qualify for a Linden Home.  For example, if you have a new premium account — you've just joined Second Life as a premium account or upgraded from a basic account — and haven't changed your land usage, then you have exactly 512m2 of available tier. You can also use tier to buy land on the mainland or rent land on a private estate. 


KBnote.png Note: You don't have to use your premium account 512m2 land tier for a Linden Home.  You can use it instead towards other mainland purchases or you can contribute it to group tier allocations.  Also, if you abandon your Linden Home, you can use your 512m2 tier to buy other mainland parcels. 


Checking if you have enough land tier available


If you don't have any land already in Second Life, then you will always have exactly enough land tier, because each premium account comes with 512m2 of land tier.  There are two ways to check if you have enough available tier:


  • Inworld: From the Viewer menus, choose World > My land holdings.... Your available land tier is listed in Available for land purchases.
  • Website: If you already own land, then you can also check if you have enough land tier on the Second Life website:
    1. Go to Your Account.
    2. On the left side of the page, click Account Summary.
    3. Find the section called Land Holdings
    4. Available square meters for purchase at your current tier is listed under Available for purchase.
