Warranty rights
Explanation:
I'm not sure, if there is an adequate equivalent for Mängelrechte in English, but try Mängelrechte. As for the whole sentence, I suggest "Warranty rights of the buyer expire after one (1) year from date of delivery of said sold moveable item." An alternative that is more product oriented may be: "Said sold moveable item is warranted to be free from defects in material or workmanship for the period of one(1) year from date of delivery."

Cheerio,
Dierk

rights as arising from the warranty


Explanation:
According to Romain, "Mängelansprüche" and "Mängelhaftung" are warranty claims and liability/warranty for defects respectively. This appears to be saying that the buyer's rights as arising from the warranty come under the statute of limitations one year after ownership of the item of tangible property has been transferred to him/her.
