Miguel Torres showed off the illegal garage dwelling to Los Angeles building inspectors Monday as if he were guiding a model home tour. In order to rent out his home for $450 a month, he had converted his two-car garage on 111th Street in South-Central Los Angeles into three rooms--bathroom, bedroom and living room--for his family of seven.

After looking at a box of live cockroaches and a drawer with rat droppings from slum apartments, the City Council this week directed housing officials to meet with tenants to draw up an inspection schedule for several apartment buildings. The insects and droppings were brought to this week's council meeting by tenants led by Nativo Lopez, organizer of a rent strike.

City officials say they plan to inspect all homes sold in the city in an attempt to crack down on illegal residences that have bloated the city's population and burdened city services. The City Council on Monday proposed an ordinance, expected to be approved later this month, that would require mandatory pre-sale inspection of all houses to combat illegal additions to homes and conversions of garages into substandard apartments.
