If you have finished paying off your Metro Bank mortgage they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Metro Bank mortgage from the register. Metro Bank,and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
but are not moving to another property
where the Metro Bank has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
the Metro Bank has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Metro Bank mortgage has been paid off.

I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Metro Bank conveyancing panel. 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 they are on the Metro Bank conveyancing panel
