SCMP: Beijing yanks license of Fang Holdings’ unit for defying rules on converted flat listings
NYSE-listed Fang Holdings became the latest target of Beijing’s property crackdown, after a local unit had its real estate brokerage license revoked, in what amounts to the harshest penalty so far given to a real estate company for violating rules against marketing flats converted from commercial or office space.

The license cancellation is part of a clampdown on sales of “commercial-converted apartments”, flats that are built on land zoned for commercial or office use. The practise was until recently very common in major Chinese cities where residential land supply is disproportionately low.

...In addition to the action against Fang Holdings, 15 branches of property offices belonging to Homelink, 5i5j and Centaline Property have been closed for violating the listing ban. However, the shutdown order was limited to individual branches found to be in violation of the directive, as authorities stopped short of taking action against the parent companies.
