Parcelled Homestead Covenant

 

No Clubs Allowed

 

Pets are allowed

 

No breeding

 

We do not refund money for any reason. You can rent your land to get your money back if needed too.

 

After you buy the land with the first week's tier a manager will add you to the tier system. This can take up to 8 hours depending on Managers available.

 

1. Grace period for the late tier is 24 hours, after which land may be reclaimed unless arrangements for late payment is made BEFORE the tier is due. If it appears you have already moved, land may be reclaimed before the end of the grace period. Our Office bot will be sending out reminders on your tier 3 days before it is due and we will send out a notecard when the tier is overdue. That gives you 24 hours to pay There is no excuse to be late on the tier. If you are having a problem just send in a support ticket at

https://support.preferredlandsales.com/

and we can make arrangements for the payment. Remember you can pay any amount at the tier box if you are having problems. You can turn off Reminders from the tier box by using the menu but remember you will not get any notices when you are late If your land is taken back and objects returned we are not responsible for lost non-copy items. if your land is taken back and objects returned we are not responsible for lost non-copy items.

 The tier can be transferred to another person  *BUT YOU MUST* notify estate management of the land sale within 24 hours.

 

2. Moving from one parcel to another:

 

 UPGRADING: Anytime, the remaining tier will be transferred to your new location

Recommended Security Settings:

 

27. In order to enhance everyone's experience and at the same time establish adequate security to protect the land and the region from most griefer attacks, the following security settings are required (you will find them under 'About Land -> Options tab'). You should have object entry and build set to group. Also, ensure the Edit terrain is unchecked. If you have that checked everyone can edit your terrain, If you decide to leave the object entry and build open and a griefer is using your land there is a change the land could be taken back if being used by griefers

 

28. Please don't involve our staff in your dispute with neighbors, behave as an adult. In a worst-case scenario you may report abuse via Linden Labs, but please only do that as a last resort.
