THE city's housing and construction bureau recently enacted a three-year work plan for curbing disorder and cracking down on illegal acts in the field of property management across Shenzhen, aiming to thoroughly regulate the industry, according to the Southern Metropolis Daily.
There have been reports of wrongdoings of property management companies at residential estates in recent years.
Some cases of severe misconduct carried out by the companies included deliberate interference with the establishment of property owner committees, embezzlement of public funds and illegally pocketing maintenance funds.
According to the work plan, the authority will mainly focus on regulating 10 kinds of misconduct, including intentionally disturbing elections and the establishment of property owner committees in any form, adopting illegal methods to protest, colluding with property owner committees to violate a property owner's interests, coercing property owners to collect money for services, operating companies without a legal license and refusing to be supervised by government departments.
The bureau also said that the initial effects of the special operation are expected before the end of this year.
