where the goods have been sold without any stipulation as to credit;
where the goods have been sold on credit but the term of credit has expired;
where the buyer becomes insolvent.
(2) The seller may exercise his lien or right of retention notwithstanding that he is in possession of the goods as agent or bailee or custodier for the buyer.
42. Where an unpaid seller has made part delivery of the goods, he may exercise his lien or right of retention on the remainder, unless such part delivery has been made under such circumstances as to show an agreement to waive the lien or right of retention.
—(1) The unpaid seller of goods loses his lien or right of retention in respect of them —

when the buyer or his agent lawfully obtains possession of the goods;
by waiver of the lien or right of retention.
(2) An unpaid seller of goods who has a lien or right of retention in respect of them does not lose his lien or right of retention by reason only that he has obtained judgment or decree for the price of the goods.
