(2) if the collateral is documents, may proceed either as to the documents or as to the goods they cover.
(b) Rights and duties of secured party in possession or control.--A secured party in possession of collateral or control of collateral under section 7106 (relating to control of electronic document of title), 9104 (relating to control of deposit account), 9105 (relating to control of electronic chattel paper), 9106 (relating to control of investment property) or 9107 (relating to control of letter-of-credit right) has the rights and duties provided in section 9207 (relating to rights and duties of secured party having possession or control of collateral).
(c) Rights cumulative; simultaneous exercise.--The rights under subsections (a) and (b) are cumulative and may be exercised simultaneously.
(d) Rights of debtor and obligor.--Except as otherwise provided in subsection (g) and section 9605 (relating to unknown debtor or secondary obligor), after default, a debtor and an obligor have the rights provided in this chapter and by agreement of the parties.
(e) Lien of levy after judgment.--If a secured party has reduced its claim to judgment, the lien of any levy which may be made upon the collateral by virtue of an execution based upon the judgment relates back to the earliest of:
(1) the date of perfection of the security interest or agricultural lien in the collateral;
(2) the date of filing a financing statement covering the collateral; or
(3) any date specified in a statute under which the agricultural lien was created.
(f) Execution sale.--A sale pursuant to an execution is a foreclosure of the security interest or agricultural lien by judicial procedure within the meaning of this section. A secured party may purchase at the sale and thereafter hold the collateral free of any other requirements of this division.
(g) Consignor or buyer of certain rights to payment.--Except as otherwise provided in section 9607(c) (relating to commercially reasonable collection and enforcement), this chapter imposes no duties upon a secured party that is a consignor or is a buyer of accounts, chattel paper, payment intangibles or promissory notes.
