Chinese property developers’ shares and bonds extended gains after Reuters revealed that China is drafting nationwide rules to make it easier for property developers to access pre-sale funds held in escrow accounts in its latest move to ease a severe cash crunch in the embattled sector.

Beijing aims to roll out the new rules by as early as the end of January in a push to prevent a wider crisis.
