Subjunctive mood in legal English (contracts)

1) "The Purchaser may submit to the Manufacturer a complaint related to defects of workmanship if these defects HAVE BEEN (or WERE?) discovered during the specified warranty period".

2) And one more question: in contracts, is "may" equal to "have the right to"? Or does MAY sound meeker?
