Q. My Landlord is selling the house I rent, is he allowed to let people just walk through the house without 24hr notice?
A: If a residential lease agreement says the landlord must provide at least 24 hours' notice, then the landlord must abide by this requirement. If the agreement doesn't say how much notice is required, the parties should expressly agree to a reasonable time frame. 24 hours is considered reasonable, but it is not absolutely required. Also, a residential landlord may evict a tenant for nonpayment of rent, violation of written lease terms or conditions, or other grounds established by law. Selling the property is not ground for eviction. The current owner must honor a valid lease with an existing tenant and, if the property is sold, the new owner must continue to honor that lease. This is just general information about North Carolina law. You should consider consulting with a knowledgeable attorney who can advise you on your specific rights and potential options.
Q. Being evicted NOT due to non-payment or illegal activity
A: In North Carolina, without a written lease agreement saying otherwise, residential tenancy is month-to-month. That means that either party can terminate by providing notice of 30 days or more. The terminating party isn't required to give a reason, as it is merely a termination, not an eviction. If you have questions about your specific rights, you should consider consulting with a knowledgeable attorney who can review the notice and advise you on your options.
Q. I need to know the status of the trademark for the triple goddess image. Triple moon image it seems as it is inactive
A: For federal trademark registration status, you could search the records of the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The database is known as "TESS." For state trademark registration status, you would need to search the records for each state. However, keep in mind that the US recognizes unregistered ("common law") trademark rights. So, the fact that something isn't currently registered as a trademark doesn't mean that nobody has trademark rights to it. Also, determining the steps that YOU would need to take to register a specific trademark involves much more than merely figuring out its current registration status. For example, it involves analyzing such factors as what products or services you use it for, where you use it, whether it is confusingly similar to another trademark for similar products or services, etc. If you are considering registering a trademark on your own, the USPTO website has a lot of information to help get you started. In fact, the USPTO used to offer a free course. You might want to check to see if that's still available. Last, having a knowledgeable trademark attorney conduct a comprehensive analysis can help you avoid either infringing on someone else's rights or wasting your money on an application that won't likely be approved. Good luck!
