It would be wise to start your search sooner rather than later.

I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Belmont lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
