    post pertains to Chinese real estate not xin specific

    China’s real estate companies have come under increased pressure this year as housing prices have slowed their previously inexorable climb and home sales have dropped by as much as 50 percent in the country’s largest cities. Smaller communities are said to be facing similar drops in sales volumes.

    The housing slowdown has made lenders cautious about extending additional credit to the industry, reducing the funding alternatives available to real estate firms such as Nanjing Fudi.
    Inter-Company Loan Defaults Start to Spread

    The same day that the property developer’s default was revealed, Shenzhen-listed Qiaqia Food (002557)announced it was suing a fellow Chinese food processing firm for failing to pay interest on a RMB 40 million yuan loan.

    As revealed in a report by Reuters, Chinese companies loaned each other RMB 2.55 trillion in what are called entrusted loans in 2013. The entrusted loans are arranged through banks but have no guarantee from the financial institution.

    The companies loaning the money in these entrusted loans are often state-run companies with greater access to credit who then loan out the money to companies in higher growth industries such as real estate. During 2013 China’s traditional banks cut back sharply on loans to the property sector, forcing many developers to turn to other channels for financing.
    Creditor Moves to Seize Nanjing Project Used as Collateral

The asset had been used as collateral on the loan, however, the shipbuilder also indicated that other creditors have also filed claims for the same project, which had apparently been used as collateral on more than one loan.
