Can we hold the previous homeowner's home inspection company liable for repairs?

Question Details: After closing, we have found multiple issues that so far have cost us over 15K to repair. The previous homeowner fancied himself a handyman and did electrical/plumbing repairs himself. On day we were to move in, we smelled gas. I called in plumbers who found 4 different gas leaks and is willing to put in writing that these were obvious defects that any reasonable home inspector should have recognized and called out. Numerous other issues have been discovered and we have spent 15K to repair to date. What legal recourse do we have?
