Window/fan code (posted by John F Janssen)

[ASKNACHI]This question was posted on by John F Janssen (from Hudson Wisconsin). [/ASKNACHI]I am looking at a house in Hudson Wisconsin to buy. They have a downstairs basement. It has no window, nor any type of ventilation fan. Is this a code violation?

Are you refering to a bathroom in the basement area?

A ventilation fan or window is required for a bathroom.
Home Inspectors are not code officials but would point this situation out as a concern during a home inspection.

P.S. I’m a home inspector in Hudson WI.
