Steve Hile



I’m a Partner based in our City office. I have over 25 years’ experience, the last 22 years here at Gerald Eve in general valuation work throughout the UK. I specialise in the office market in Central London and the home counties with emphasis on rating/local property tax valuations and the Serviced/Managed Office sector. I work closely with our Rate Management and Payment Team, the largest in the country, managing in the region of £1.5billion a year in rate payments on behalf of our clients.

I have conducted research and negotiations with the Valuation Office Agency on all the rating lists from 1973 through to the current time. I work on a variety of property types but predominantly offices, including serviced office providers and media companies. I have presented cases to Valuation Tribunal on a number of occasions.

My clients include Grosvenor Estates, , DMGT, GSK, Hays recruitment, Hertz, Pearson Education, Kier Property, Newsquest, Equinix, Boutique Workplace, Bizspace,), Rio Tinto AMSPROP, The Office Group, Warner Music and the Greater London Authority.



  • As a team we have returned in excess of £35million to clients in the Flexible Office Sector over the last 3 years, by minimising their rate liability and enabling their clients to claim Small Business Rate Relief.
  • We have provided advice to Central London estates in terms of redevelopments and budgeting advice for their clients.
