Quickly,

You need to get in touch with the real life brother and discuss with him the disposition of the Virtual Estate of his deceased brother. He needs to get in touch with Linden Research to discuss the disposition of the Private Estate Island named "Helgi Island."

If you get a hold of his brother please talk with him via phone because explaining SL and what we do and are is going to be much easier that way.

Unfortunately, none of you have standing to request a transfer of this island into one of your SL accounts. The estate laws of the country/state/province and the willingness of the brother to aid you is required to give permission to Linden Lab to perform a transfer of this island into another's hands.

If the original owner has been decreased past 30 days then the payment for the island is coming up. If the USD balance has enough money in it and/or if the payment method on file is still active then the tiers will be paid against the USDs with the remainder billed against the PM on file. Do not assume that the island is good to go if 30 days comes and goes. LL is under no obligation to warn the residents of when they will take the island offline. That notice will only be sent to the original account holder's email address.

If the brother is not available, will not reply or won't help you then you need to find a new private region to purchase on the used region market, get it associated with the group you are in and then get it teraformed and the builds all moved in an organized manor ASAP.

It's better to do this sooner than later because once LL shuts down this island for non payment, the residents may petition LL to open it up again in order to take their possessions back into their inventory during a short agreed upon time period.

 

In a Private Email we discussed this further. Permission to post was granted...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Unfortunately no. When you pay another account you are transferring Lindens to that account. All Island fees need to be paid with USD [uS Dollars]. The Island Owner's SL account needs to login and sell the accumulated lindens to replenish the USD Balance to the amount needed for that island. This process is not automatic.

Assuming this was the only island owned, that is $295.00 that needs to be in the USD Balance before the Private Region Fee Processing Date. If the USD account balance is less than the amount needed then the Payment Method on file will be billed. If that PM is no longer available and/or if the payment is denied for any reason, the Island will be in default and the automatic eviction process [LL Takes the Island Region Ofline] timer begins.

Getting in touch with the Brother is an absolute necessity followed by him contacting Linden Lab as the executor of the deceased siblings estate with all the normal proof responsibility of required. This will include a copy of the Death Certificate and the Legal Documents appointing him as the designate administrator of his siblings estate. After this is done he can dispose of the island and/or initiate the sale of it to you with a lot of help by someone who understands this process.

Remember, the brother may not see this as an urgent issue and have other more pressing matters to attend to.

I've been the trustee and executor of estates several times.

[name removed for security] may have managed the $$ well for the business and kept a larger USD balance on hand larger than needed for the immediate month. Once again you have no way of knowing this. In the US, legally this USD Balance belongs to the Estate of the deceased and can generally be used to pay debts of the deceased until the Estate Administrator ends the debt agreement.

Now, unless the Island Owner shared the payment due date with one of you, you have no ideas where the island owners account is in its payment schedule nor do you know if it is already in a default status.

So you and the group Owners/Contributors need to get together ASAP and discuss this and decide if you will be obtaining your own Region and moving to it. At the same time someone who understands these matters needs to try to contact the Brother. Being in the same Country and State/Province will help immensely.

If you have no success with the decease's family then you are at lease researching moving the group lands elsewhere.
