I have paid off my mortgage with Lloyds. I assume I don't need a Newport Pagnell property lawyer on the Lloyds panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

- but are not moving to another property
- where Lloyds has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Lloyds has instructed the Land Registry to do so
