This is where the distinction between a Lawyer and Conveyancer is so important.
Conveyancers can either possess the qualifications necessary to practice conveyancing or they can be qualified as a lawyer. If you decide to use a conveyancer who is not a lawyer, the rule of thumb is that they need to be fully licensed, otherwise they can’t practice conveyancing at all!

If you are selling, the Contract of Sale and Vendor’s Statement must be prepared by lawyer. A conveyancer who is not a lawyer legally cannot perform these type of services, and must therefore rely on the help of a lawyer. As a result, you may be charged an extra fee.
