Everything you need to know about your Linden Home is here >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Linden-Homes/ta-p/700103

Before you get that far, though, be sure that you have read and understand what you get with your Premium membership >>> http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Premium-membership/ta-p/1054477

I advise that strongly because you have apparently already misunderstood one important thing.  There is NO monthly payment of L$512. Your Premium membership entitles you to a land fee waiver that you may use for paying the monthly fees (like property taxes or a condominium fee) on any 512 sq m parcel of land on the Mainland in Second Life.  You may use it in either of two ways:

1. To pay for the rental of a Linden Home, which comes on its own 512 sq m parcel, or

2. To pay the land fees of any other 512 sq m parcel that you buy on the Mainland.

There are several differences between those options, as you will read in the articles I gave you links for.  There are advantages and disadvantages to each.  In either case, though, YOU have to take the first step to either request a Linden Home or buy your own land.  Or, you can choose to do neither one for now.  There's no rush.  The land fee waiver is yours whenever you decide to use it.

If you are renting from another resident, no. In that case, you are paying the landowner, not Linden Lab. The land fee waiver applies to paying fees on land that you own. However, you could buy a 512 sq m parcel on the mainland and rent it to another resident. Your land fee waiver would cover the monthly fees, and anything you got as rent should pay you back for buying the land in a short time. After that, any rental profit would help cover some of what you are paying to rent on the private estate. Just an idea .....

You buy it. SL residents advertize available land in the land forums or you can open your Search function, select the Land Sales tab, choose Mainland Sales, specify 512 sq m, and click SEARCH. Or you can buy abandoned land. See http://community.secondlife.com/t5/English-Knowledge-Base/Abandoned-land/ta-p/846143#Section_.8 There are lots of other ways to find land too. If you want to go that route, you may want to take Lindal Kidd's free class in land ownership and management at Caledon Oxbridge University in world on Friday evening at 5 SLT.
