    The answer depends on the language of the sublease. If it is truly a term that ends October 2010, the term ends and you should be able to leave. If there is language that says "and month to month thereafter" it may be more problematic. In that case you may be held liable for 60 days from either the date of notice or from last day of October (e.g. End of December). This also depends on the language in the sublease document related to the 60 day notice.

    As note above, quiet title and adverse posession does not lend itself to "do it yourself" legal work by non-sttorneys. Most attorneys would not want to "review" the work, as the risk is not typically worth the reward. If the land is that valuable to file a quiet title action, it is probably worth the investment to retain good counsel.

    The answer by the Los Angeles attorney was correct.. Your remedy is to file a quiet title action in King County to regain title. Since the notary was in CA, you may have an action against the notary who acknowledged the deed. You may also have criminal and civil actions in both Washington and California. The title company may not be liable unless the Quit Claim deed was part of an escrow at a title company (which I doubt would have occured).

    Generally, courts will enforce these types of covenants assuming they were properly created. The HOA does not need a "warrant" but will need a court order allowing enforcement of the covenant and allowing the action of even directing the Sheriff to stand by and enforce the peace. Most likely, the HOA's costs of enforcement will be chargable as a HOA lien on the property.

  5. My Landlord only gave me part of my deposit back.

    One important fact you did not include, was there a move in move out check list signed by you and the Landlord? If there was no condition report, the landlord is not allowed to keep any deposit at all. See RCW 59.18.260. Also, the landlord has 14 days to provide an itemized accounting of any deposit that is not returned. See RCW 29.18.280. If these things didn't happen you may be able to recover the rest of the deposit in small claims court.
