This is some utter bullshit and a violation of the Terms of Service!

"I really feel bad for these people I suckered into paying twice as much for property they could save a lot more money on by buying it from Linden Labs." Landlords suck.

It's those unspoken "introductory" prices that gets them netted a lot of times. "Oh wow! A homestead for 4500L$!" In the words of Timmy Turner of Fairly Odd Parents... "What could possibly go wrong?"

The bastards don't tell you that they'll wait a month (if even that) and jack your price up waaaaay higher and keep it there until the renter is smart enough to pick up their shit and leave. The problem is, many folks would rather just keep paying ratfucked prices than simply grab their stuff and MOVE. Hell, buy your land from LL directly, as others are saying here. Don't fall for RGF's bait and switch tactics.

If you do insist on renting your island, check the estate owner of the land and avoid anything owned by "Rich Grainger" just to be safe. Even if the person subleasing it under him wants to keep your rate low, they're not gonna rent at a loss when he eventually raises THEIR tier.
Peace.
