So the buyer's inspector stated the flex lone was installed improperly however we never changed it and the home inspection company we used never mentioned the flex hose. This is for a gas fire place.

Depending upon the instructions for the cosmetic logs a flexible connector is probably okay. However, that looks like two connectors in series which would not be okay. Reasonably easy fix for a plumber.

Ok thank you, so it has to do with the connector. Would I be able to call the previous home inspection company if they missed this 3 years ago in their report?
