Before Andrew Benzer and his girlfriend, Mary Robinson, moved out of their Columbia Heights apartment last September, Benzer spackled, sanded and painted the small blemishes created by picture hangers. He even repainted one of the rooms, restoring it to its original color to comply with his lease.
 
Almost a month later, Benzer, 29, and Robinson, 27, received their security deposit refund. Nearly $1,400 of their $1,950 deposit was missing.
