New Star's Property Unit Trust has bought the 132,000 sq ft B&Q on Solartron Road in Farnborough for £50m, a 4% yield, and the 100,000 sq ft Hayes Bridge retail park in Uxbridge for £47.25m, a 4.5% yield.

L&G was advised by HP Four on B&Q and by King Sturge on Hayes. New Star was advised by HP Four on Hayes and by CBRE on the B&Q.
