Then you want to buy a mainland parcel and nothing else (ETA: unless you buy a whole private region...).

 

ETA:

Finding land to buy

There are a couple of different ways to find land to acquire in Second Life.

  • Click the Search button at the bottom of the Second Life window, then click the Land Sales tab: It shows land other Residents have for sale. You can click the All Types and PG & Mature dropdown menus to look for specific types of land (such as mainland, private regions, or land up for auction), and narrow down your results by price and size too.
  • Looking for land on the mainland near you? Select World > World Map to open the map, and then select the Land for Sale checkbox. Nearby land for sale is highlighted on the map.
  • Second Life's Auctions also list land parcels up for sale to the highest bidder. Auction parcels can sell for Linden Dollars (L$) as well as US dollars (USD$).
  • Ask around and read the forums

Hello jeffric. Buy a land means that you have the rights of owner there or the most of them, but it doesnt mean that you pay for it just 1 time. You have still to pay the tier per week or per month. Even you buy a region directly by LL you still have to pay the monthly  tier. If you upgrate in premium member, you will get a small parcel in Mainland 512sq m2 with any additional cost with a house 60 prims and the right to use 117 additional prims, untill your premium membership expires.

Technically you can never own land, you will be leasing it from the owner. It is virtual land that ultimately belongs to Linden Labs. What you can do as a premium member is purchase land and not have to pay tier, up to a certain extent. For example, I as a premium member am allowed 512 square meters of tier free land. That means I can either have a Linden home or purchase my own land from LL. If you purchase land for a group you and your friend form, you receive a ten percent land bonus. If you and she are both premium for example, you could have 512 times two plus ten percent land tier free. Type in buying land in the search button up top, there is tons of info on the subject.

You will always pay monthly tier fees, it is like land tax or maintainance fees. The bigger the land the higher the fees. The main difference with owning mainland land is that you pay the tier to LL & there is less chance LL will just disappear and take your land back, so people tend to think its more secure. You also get to resell it and hopefully make back whatever you paid for it, though in the current market land is really cheap anyway.

Hello Just submit a ticket to LL if you are premium and they will get back to you, if not you need to up grade I do think and then you will be able to buy from them, not rent but own.
