This should be your first destination. A wide range of properties are available for viewing at the Estate Office. Teleports to all our property locations can be found there. Location: Tropicana Sunseekers 601/725/23
Thank you for considering a property rental with us. All properties are free and provided on a first come first served basis. We are looking for long term tenants not people who move from one property to the other. We would like to point out that we have a "Use it or lose it" rentals policy. This means that if you are not using, decorating or maintaining your property or land then it will be at risk of being reclaimed.
Once you have collected the landmarks to the properties you wish to view, you can teleport to them. Look out for the rental box near where you land at each property location. To rent the property, just click on the rental box. You can add more weeks to a maximum of 4 weeks by right clicking on the box and extending the time. Give the box a few seconds to settle while you do this. Keep this rental box topped up on a regular basis.
You will now need the group tag in order to build. We no longer send this out automatically due to abuse. Once you have rented it is important that you contact us via our Support line on the link below and inform us of which property you have rented and on what region, and that you wish to join the residents group.
This is the only way you can obtain a group invitation. Do not directly IM us. We know it is inconvenient for you but it is also very difficult for us because historically people just request group tags without telling us where they rented, or move home without informing us. This creates confusion in the Estate Office with visitors not knowing which properties are available or taken.
Please do not let your rental box expire or your furniture and items will be returned to you immediately.
Please only move once a month. We have to change the rental boards at the Estate Office whenever anyone rents. This creates a lot of work for us but makes it easier for you to see which properties are available.
You can help us by using our Welcome area on the Tropicana region. This is a good place to meet people and it helps us with our region stats. You are welcome to "Set Home" here if you wish.
Before you contact us directly with a question please read the FAQ's below. Thank You.
IMPORTANT: FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THESE TERMS WILL RESULT IN A BAN OR REFUSAL TO PROVIDE RENTALS. SORRY BUT WE DON'T HAVE TIME TO HELP IF YOU CANNOT READ OUR RENTAL TERMS. PLEASE RESPECT THIS - THANK YOU.
Tropicana ~ FAQ's
1. Can I have more than one home or land?
A: No. We only allow one per person per household and that includes alts belonging to the same person ( we periodically run IP address checks for alts )'

A: If you took a furnished house you still have a smaller prim allowance to add your own personal things but we will not remove furniture that is already there.
