I want to downgrade my account, but I am having trouble abandoning my land.

In order to downgrade your account from a Premium membership to Basic membership, you will need to make sure to abandon any land you own including, Linden Home, leases, or group donated land. 

  • Log into the official Second Life viewer.
  • Be sure you are located on your parcel.
  • In the World menu, open About Land.
  • In the General tab, please click Abandon Land.

Once you have abandoned the land, you can follow these steps to continue the downgrade process:

  • In the menu that drops down, select Premium Membership.
  • Under the Manage Membership section, you will see a display chart of Membership plans and prices.
