In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel, but Yorkshire BS would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.
