  1. Find a parcel. There are several ways to do that, including:
    • Use the search tool in the upper-right of your Viewer window.
    • Browse the World Map.
    • Search for or browse the Mainland category on Second Life Marketplace.
    • Look for parcel borders: choose World > Show > Property Lines and/or Land Owners.
  2. On the parcel, choose World > Buy This Land. The Buy Land window appears with more details.
    • You may need to buy more L$ first if the parcel's cost exceeds your current balance.
    • Or you may need to upgrade your account if the parcel size exceeds your current allowed land holdings.
    • On a private estate, you need to check I agree to the Covenant Defined Above.
  3. Once everything is set, click Purchase.

Making a parcel group-owned

  1. After buying a parcel, choose World > Place Profile > About Land.
  2. Click Set to open Groups.
  3. Select a group and click OK.
  4. Check Allow Deed to Group.
    • If you're also contributing your land holdings to the group, check Owner Makes Contribution With Deed.
  5. Click Deed.
KBnote.png Note: Deeding land to a group transfers ownership of the land parcel to the group. One or more group members must make contributions for the land tier.

Group-owned land has many subtleties such as a 10% land-holding bonus, so it's well worth reading more help. For more information, see Group-owned land.

Customizing a parcel

Once you own a parcel, there are two basic ways to customize it:

  1. Administrative settings - Choose World > Place Profile > About Land.
  2. Inworld customization
    • You can rez objects like a house and furniture onto your parcel.
    • Depending on the land, you may be able to terraform it.
