I am considering applying for a Santander mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Blackwall with 70% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Santander ?

They will also have local intelligence which is a benefit. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job.
