Episode 71 of Lets Talk features the Operations Director of Pinstripe Inventories, Matthew Mackay, talking about the importance of having a meticulous inventory in place at the start of a tenancy to avoid deposit disputes or even an adjudication.

Matthew talks about his career to date and that of co-founder and director of Pinstripe Inventories, Dominic Bargeton. He also discusses the growth of the company to where it is now with several branches across Scotland.

Matthew developed a software solution for the company and Lets Talk host, Gillian Semmler, asks him about how technology has changed since Pinstripe started in 2009.

The podcast also covers the topic of tenancy deposit schemes; why they were introduced and how the deposit repayment procedure works, as well as how mid tenancy inspections can help prevent deposit issues at the end of a tenancy.

Matthew also discusses the recent media coverage on how inventories are set to play a vital role in fire safety within the private rented sector.

Water Aid Munro Challenge

The Pinstripe team took to the hills last year to fundraise for Water Aid by taking part in the Munro Challenge. It made for a great team building day and Matthew talks about his passion for hillwalking, as well as his talent for landscape painting.
