Spectrum cable sales person soliciting new business inside a 100 unit condo building which is clearly marked No Soliciting. The Sales Team Manager claims his rep can come in to check on equipment without any request made by a condo resident. Again, he is a SALES contractor, not a SERVICE company. No one seems to know by what means this guy enters our secure building. This easement was originally granted in the 1980's when the building converted from apartments to condos.
The language of the easement determines whether and when it expires by its terms, so you need to look at that. However, as you noted a service person and a salesperson are different, so I don't think the easement comes into play here. They can use the easement to come into the building to fix equipment or service cable lines, but that's different from a salesperson knocking on the door. I've actually experienced this lately myself. I have a "No Solicitation" sign on my office entrance door, but Spectrum sales representatives are still knocking on the door and leaving advertising stickers. Does your City have a "do not knock" registry? If you are Cincinnati proper I'm thinking probably not, but you may want to check with the City and see if they have any restrictions or registration requirements for door to door salespeople. Good luck!
