Does anyone know the rules regarding fans and rewires .Been to look at a potential rewire and the existing building has no fans in kitchen(which is limited for space with 2ft wall)and bathroom(which has a flat roof with roof window) so has ventilation. Looked on the Gov planning portal website and downloaded part f but am none the wiser.If impractical and landlord doesn't want them can they be left out .

I'm pretty sure building control will insist on it.Four inch timerfan to bathroom and either duct the cooker extracter to outside(4 inch) or else 6inch fan elsewhere in room. They won't wear the open window arguement.You might even have to duct out thru another room and box it in.

I don't think they can insist on them in this case. Is any other building work taking place? Is building control involved? There are probably a loads of things about the building that don't conform to current standards.

I don't think building regulations can be imposed retrospectively. If it was a new build or a conversion then ventilation would be required.

If building control are involved then ask the building inspector
