Damage to our future property after we put down payment

We put our 10% down on this duplex that we wanted to buy.   When we went back tot the property there was new water damage.  Probably from the clogged gutters.  Water ran thru the Porch into the house and brought damge to the garage ceiling.  That ceiling at a minimun has to now be replaced.  this is a bank owned property.  Can we ask them. and do we have any standing in requesting that they pay for this repair.  In addition to the repair, if they don't have the gutters cleaned out there will be additional damage if there is a rain storm before we close.  How should we proceed here/
