Yes. Please see below. And, according to these threads, you shouldn't have to remove anthing from the land nor LL wipes it.

You may choose to convert some of your Private Regions from one Private Region type to another. This article covers the different scenarios and costs associated with each possible conversion. 

Converting regions

When converting down from a Full Region or Homestead Region to one or more Homestead or Openspace regions, you are charged the difference in setup fees plus a one-time conversion fee of $100. Once the conversion has taken place, the appropriate new monthly fees apply. Your bill date remains the same as that of the original Region.

When converting up from an Openspace Region to a Homestead Region or Full Region, you are charged the difference in setup fees between the two types of Regions.  We waive the $100 conversion fee if you're converting up.  Once the conversion has taken place, the appropriate new monthly fees apply and the new billing date is an average of the billing dates from your converted regions.

If you have multiple Openspaces or Homesteads to convert, each counts contributes its setup value against the price of a full Region. For example, if you want to convert two Openspaces to a Full Region, it costs the set up fee of the Full Region ($1000) minus the combined setup fee of each Openspace ($250 + $250), and we waive the conversion fee ($100) : $1000 - ($250 + $250) = $500.

Examples:

  • Converting 2 Openspace Regions to a Full Region would be $1000 - ($250 + $250) = $500
  • Converting 2 Homestead Regions to a Full Region would be $1000 - ($375 + $375) = $250
32px-KBcaution.png Important: Conversions which incur a negative balance do not result in a refund for the surplus amount. For example, the math for converting 3 Homestead Regions to a Full Region: is: $1000 - ($375 + $375 + $375 ) = -$125, but you don't get a $125 credit for the conversion.
