How do I change the name of the estate owner name to new owner after private sale of two islands?

Question

  • 0

You need to officially transfer the islands to your ownership.

Cost $100 USD per Island. You may also move, rename the Estate and the rename islands as well.  After this the Linden Lab monthly billing will affect you account.

Instructions follow:

Transferring Private Regions

  Important: If the buyer's payment fails for any reason, then the transfer is cancelled and no action is taken. Both Second Life accounts must be in good standing for the transfer to take place.

Linden Lab can perform Resident-to-Resident transfers of Private Regions (islands), but both buyer and seller need to agree on a price. Both buyer and seller must submit support tickets, via the Support Portal, naming the region to be transferred and the transaction amount agreed upon in either U.S. dollars (USD) or Linden dollars (L$). Both sides also have to confirm other details about the region being transferred. We can rename the Private Region and move it from its original location at the time of the transfer for no additional cost. Please include these requests in the buyer's transfer ticket.

Either party can cancel the transfer by closing out their ticket prior to the transfer being performed.

Here's how to submit a ticket:

  1. Go to the Support Portal and log in with your Second Life account.
  2. Open a new support case.
  3. Under What type of problem are you having? select Land & Region.
  4. Under Land & Region, choose Initiate Region Sale or Initiate Region Purchase as appropriate.
  5. Complete the other required fields. The information must be consistent for both the buyer and seller tickets.
  6. When all the details have been entered, scroll to the bottom and click Submit.

If both tickets match (that is, they state the same details and value), we charge the buyer's Second Life account in either USD or L$, as specified in the tickets. Once the charge goes through, we credit the seller the same amount minus the transfer fee.

  Note: Buyers using PayPal need to have their PayPal agreements set to a high enough spending limit. By default PayPal limits are relatively low.

Private Region transfers usually take 5-10 business days from the time both tickets are received.

Transfer fees

There is a USD$100 (or L$28,000 for L$ transfers) transfer fee per region, debited from the seller's account, which pays for backend work by Linden Lab, including:

  • Changing estate ownership settings
  • Billing transfer
  • Region name change
  • Moving the region

The Increase Credit link on your Dashboard (shown when you click the Manage link under the Linden Exchange heading on the left) can be used to add USD credit to an account.

Monthly billing

The new owner assumes the monthly billing, which is charged on the same day of the month as always. Private Regions, unlike the mainland, bill for the coming month. If the Private Region bills on the 12th of the month, it will continue to bill on the 12th of the month. This means that if the Private Region is transferred on the 14th, the current owner pays for that month. If the Private Region is transferred on the 10th, the new owner pays the fee for the month.

Moving and renaming Private Regions

Pricing for Private Region Management Services

If you own one or more private regions in Second Life, there are several special services you may occasionally need, such as region moves and region name changes. The fees for these services depend on the number of private regions you own; please refer to the following chart to determine the cost of each service:

To request one of these services, please submit a case through the support portal on the Second Life website.  Additional information on how to move and rename private regions can be found in the next sections.

Renaming a Private Region

To initiate the renaming process, submit a support case stating that you would like to change your region's name and that you accept the fee.

The new name must comply with the Guidelines for Private Region Naming. Private region names are granted at the sole discretion of Linden Lab.

Moving a Private Region

Private region owners can request to move a region to another location on the World Map, subject to availability. Certain areas of the World Map are reserved for special purposes, including the mainland and themed expansions provided by Linden Lab.

If you would like to move your region adjacent to another Resident's region, they must allow you as a neighbor in our system prior to your request for the region move.  Note that your private region cannot be rotated, so what is currently North will always be North.

The fee for moving a region is charged for each private region, for any movement.

  Note: Moving your private region causes links made from the Picks tab of the Profile window to become inaccurate.

Landmarks continue to function after a move, but home locations may need to be reset. The World Map may take several hours to update with the new Private Region location.

Read KarenMichelle's answer very carefully!

One thing you must understand...if you "bought" the land from her using the Buy Land tool, the land still does not belong to you, even though you show as the land owner.  Your friend is still the estate owner in the eyes of LL, and will be charged the monthly land fee for the regions.

You MUST use the procedure that KarenMichelle showed you to fully transfer ownership of a private estate region to a new owner.
