Trade Mark Changes

The details on your trade mark application or registration may need to be updated when you move addresses or sell your trade mark. You may even decide to cancel your trade mark application or registration.

TRADEMARKZONE can easily prepare and apply electronically for such changes with the Intellectual Property Office of New Zealand (IPONZ) within 24 hours of receiving your application. We provide the following changes:

1.   Change of Owner

A trade mark is a form of property. You can sell it or transfer it to someone else. If you buy a trade mark, you are legally required to notify IPONZ of the change in ownership so that IPONZ can update the Trade Marks Register. This is to avoid ownership disputes. You must also send evidence of the change such as the sale and purchase agreement (assignment document) to IPONZ.

Where you have bought a trade mark, TRADEMARKZONE can assist you to register your name on the trade mark title. We will:

  1. Prepare your Change of Owner request
  2. File your request electronically with IPONZ within 24 hours of receiving your application
  3. Monitor your request at IPONZ
  4. Check and forward a copy of the confirmation of the change from IPONZ.

Our Price NZ$150 per trade mark
