Shanghai's urban and housing management authorities are to step up coordination and crackdown on property management service providers' irregularities, they announced on Tuesday.

Property management service companies are required to stop practices such as erecting illegal structures, damaging load-bearing structures, changing the property of housing, occupying public areas and damaging or occupying public facilities and they should report to authorities, the Shanghai Urban Management and Law Enforcement Bureau said.

Authorities will list property management service providers found failing to do so and impose administrative penalties in the city's property management monitoring and service information credibility platform, the bureau said.
