231.     Parting with or loss of title deeds.

The creditor with whom title deeds were deposited did not lose his lien by parting with the deeds for the purpose of allowing a sale to be effected1, or, if the debtor was the creditor's solicitor and the deeds were in his custody as the creditor's agent, by the debtor wrongfully removing them from the creditor's deed box2.
