We, the landlords, property managers, real estate investors and home owners across the United States request an immediate end to the Eviction Moratorium put into place as Executive Order 2020-211.  The order unfairly puts the rights and well being of the tenants ahead of the rights and well being of the property owner.  

The order violates Articles 11 and 29 of the Declaration of Rights,[12] and the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution,[13] because it denies litigants the right to free access to the courts without undue delay, and fails to provide "an impartial interpretation of the laws, and administration of justice."[14][15][16]

In addition, all landlords have been completely deprived of their right to access and petition the courts to redress disputes with tenants through a total shutdown and indefinite ban on virtually every eviction case being filed and pending in the entire United States for an unknown period of time.

Furthermore, the ban on notices to terminate a tenancy and the requirement that landlords must provide missed rental notices advising tenants that they are not being evicted and providing contact information for agencies who can assist them violates their First Amendment right to free speech.[18]

Finally, the order results in an unlawful taking of real property without just compensation, in violation of Article 10 of the Declaration of Rights and the Fifth Amendment of the Constitution,[19] because it forces property owners to house nonpaying tenants and improperly interferes with their contract rights, in violation of the contracts clause of the Constitution, because it impairs landlords' rights and remedies in their lease agreements with tenants.[20][21]

With several of the cases the tenants are not only taking advantage of this situation, and not lifting a finger to apply for assistance, but they will also never be able to reimburse the landlord for the shelter they are receiving against the clearly defined parameters of their lease with no consequence.

Unless the rules are better defined and each eviction is considered on a case by case basis the following signatures are citizens calling for a complete dismissal of all eviction moratoriums and for the process to move forward as it always has.
