The UK's private landlord population now has a new minister to deal with issues surrounding the private rented sector.

Prime minister Gordon Brown's recent government reshuffle has resulted in Ian Austin replacing Iain Wright as the politician responsible for this particular area of the property industry.

This move comes after the Association of Residential Letting Agents and the Communities and Local Government department both announced proposals to change the private rented sector for the better.

National Landlords Association (NLA) chairman David Salusbury welcomed the arrival of Mr Austin, but also commended the departing minister for the work he has done for landlords over the last two years.

He explained: "The recently published government recommendations for the sector are ambitious and to ensure that the voice of landlords is heard throughout the consultation process, the NLA hopes to meet Mr Austin as soon as possible."
