Those who speculate in China's proerty market should stop as soon as possible as the authorities have enhanced measures to curb the bubbles and stabilize the market, the 21st Century Business Herald said in an editorial. Some banks in several cities have halted mortgage lending to pre-owed homes as the government wants to prevent an overheated housing market driven by fast-rising residential debt from last year through Q1, the newspaper said.
