Our People

Tina Marwa

Director & Head of Property Department

I qualified as a solicitor in November 1997 spending my early years in law firms across East London.

I have been specialising in property law since 2009. I was delighted to join F Barnes in February 2020 following eleven years at Gepp & Sons in Chelmsford. I became Head of the Conveyancing Department in April 2021 and a Director in April 2022. I am proud to have such a wonderful team working alongside me.

Whilst I work tirelessly for my clients regardless of the size of the transaction I have a particular interest in higher value property matters. Becoming a client of mine often comes about having been recommended by one or more of my many satisfied existing clients. I like to think I have become the natural choice by many property agents and brokers when recommending their client to F Barnes Solicitors.

Clients and estate agents alike describe me as a 'safe pair of hands'. You will find I work hard to ensure you are kept fully informed about the progress of your house move.

Outside of work I have had the privilege of  having a spell as President of the West Essex Law Society.

I am fluent in both Punjabi and Hindi making me a popular choice with clients across Metropolitan Essex and London.

What the clients say:

Having used Tina Marwa on several occasions previously with other properties, it was the obvious choice to use her services again. We found Tina Marwa and Michelle Lilley offering excellent service throughout. S Saville

Tina has quickly become our family solicitor. Having first met her through my sisters property transaction I found her helpful and for that I chose to use her for my transaction, my brothers transaction and another sisters transaction. We will be coming back as another sister is yet to buy. Tina has been so helpful, always available for a call and I never got the impression she was on a rush to hang up, she always took her time to listen and explain processes clearly and always had that personal touch. The transaction felt super smooth because of Tina. I cannot thank her enough. Brilliant solicitor. A Ahmed

Angela and I just want to say how grateful we are for your hard work and great professionalism during a very stressful period. We believe if it wasn't for you and your team chasing up our buyers solicitors we would never of bought our dream home.Thank you again from now relaxed clients. Mr Jackson

Tina and Michelle were the best I’ve ever experienced, the communication was so helpful and that means so much when buying a property and feeling like you’re unsure of what’s happening. A wonderful experienced I’ll be recommending them to anyone I know buying/selling a house..thank you! S Lavery

I used the Gidea Park branch to handle my sale and purchase during lockdown and despite the stress of such an unprecedented situation, Tina Marwa was superb. She made everything easy to understand and answered all of my questions, had paperwork available straight away and ensured she was available at the earliest opportunities to deal with queries and chase the rest of the chain as often as needed. She also supported me throughout the whole stressful process with confidence, even when furloughed for part of the week once lockdown was over. I can’t recommend her or the Gidea Park  branch highly enough!!

I have bought, sold and remortgaged many houses in my time and I can honestly say that F Barnes and Co, and Tina in particular, have provided me with the best service I can recall. From the comforting, unsolicited updates to the calm manner in which a few hiccups were handled. Notably being proactive in arranging an indemnity policy quotation for me to cover an issue and to working beyond the call to get my exchange and completion on time in the face of obduracy on the part of my buyer's Solicitor. Happy to recommend to anyone who asks and will 100% use again. John Harvey

Tina and Michelle dealt with the sale of our parents property, they were both compassionate and professionalThey were easy to contact and answered any queries immediately even though working in difficult times with COVID. I would have no hesitation in recommending their service. Janette Foster

I am very happy with the service. Tina and her assistant Michelle were excellent and kept me fully up to date and helped me in anyway they could. I would defiantly recommend them to anyone. S Saville
