According to the July effective revised Housing Law, investors of housing projects must be guaranteed by banks to ensure customers’ rights.

The banks are responsible for refunding a guaranteed amount of money that house buyers have paid the investors in advance if their houses are not built and delivered on schedule. 

The refund must be made a month after the house delivery date expires.
