Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist with your concerns.

You do not need an attorney for such an agreement--you can type this up yourself. You can include language stating that the parties have agreed to terminate this early and that the tenants, by early termination, have agree to forgo and waive their past security and pet deposits. The letter can be as short or as long as you wish, so long as all of the points are listed. If you wish, I can help by editing whatever you wish to draft.

Sincerely,

Dimitry, Esq.

is there an additional fee for helping me edit the letter?
Expert:  Dimitry K., Esq. replied 11 months ago.

There is, as it is seen as an additional service. However, if you simply wish to write a letter and have be review it without major edits, I would be happy to do so as a courtesy.

Sincerely,

Dimitry, Esq.
