I am selling my flat in North Cornelly. Does my solicitor have to be on the Santander conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Santander conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale.

You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently currently.
