Can I get theprevious homeowners or the inspector to cover the cost of a defective roof?

We purchased our home 3 years ago and when they did the home inspection they didn’t check the roof; there was snow and the inspector told us the house was new and so there shouldn’t be any issues. The roof leaks and we have recently found out the old owners had issues with it leaking and never told us. Is there anything we can do or has too much time passed?
