The Adams can identify a responsible party, do they have standing to file a civil lawsuit for the damages caused by the storms

Chase and Ashley recently purchased and moved into a new home. While Ashley is unpacking from their new move into their new house, numerous leaks occur in the roof as a result of thunderstorms. Although they have homeowners insurance to cover the cost of repairing their house and replacing some possessions, it will not be enough to cover all of their replacement costs. The Real Estate Company that hired the Agent who sold the house to the Adams is headquartered in another state (Alaska). An inspector came in (someone recommended by Real Estate company) and said that there were no problems with the new roof/ceiling. Previous homeowners were already renting somewhere else/gone so got no information from them. They called real estate agent and inspector but went to voicemail. 1.
