The dwelling located on the property identified in the caption hereof is constructed in substantial conformity with the plans and specifications (including any amendments thereof, or changes and variations therein) which have been approved in writing by the Federal Housing Commissioner or the Secretary of Veterans Affair on which the Federal Housing Commissioner or the Secretary of Veterans Affairs based the valuation of the dwelling: Provided, however, That this warranty shall apply only to such instances of substantial nonconformity as to which the Purchaser(s)/Owner(s) or his/her (their) successors or transferees shall have given written notice to the Warrantor at anytime or times within one year from the date of original conveyance of title to such Purchaser(s)/Owner(s) or the date of initial occupancy, whichever first occurs: Provided further, however, That in the event (1) the Purchaser(s)/Owner(s) acquired title to the captioned property prior to the completion of construction of the dwelling thereon, such notice of non conformity to the Warrantor may be given anytime or times within one year from the date of completion or initial occupancy of such dwelling, whichever first occurs, or (2) where it has been necessary to postpone improvements such notice of non conformity to the Warrantor as to such incomplete items may be given at anytime or times within one year from the date of full completion of each of such items.
The term "dwelling" as used herein shall be deemed to include all improvements or appurtenances set forth in the plans and specifications upon which the Federal Housing Commissioner or the Secretary of Veterans Affairs has based the valuation of the property, excepting those constructed by a municipality or other government authority.
The undersigned Warrantor further warrants to the Purchaser(s)/Owner(s) or his/her (their) successors or transferees the property against defects in equipment, material, or workmanship and materials supplied or performed by the Warrantor or any subcontractor or supplier at any tier resulting in noncompliance with standards of quality as measured by acceptable trade practices. This warranty shall continue for a period of one year from the date of original conveyance of title to such Purchaser(s) or from the date of full completion of each of any items completed after conveyance of title. The Warrantor shall remedy, at the Warrantor's expense, any defect(s) of equipment, material or workmanship furnished by the Warrantor.

This warranty shall be in addition to, and not in derogation of, all other rights and privileges which such Purchaser(s)/Owner(s) or his/her (their) successors or transferee may have under any other law or instrument, and shall survive the conveyance of title, delivery of possession of the property, or other final settlement made by the Purchaser(s)/Owner(s) and shall be binding on the Warrantor notwithstanding any provision to the contrary contained in the contract of purchase or other writing executed by the Purchaser(s)/Owner(s) or his/her (their) successors or transferees, heretofore or contemporaneously with the execution of this agreement or prior to final settlement.
