toilet ventilation into stairwell

Enviromental health Scotland tells me i cant extract a toilet fan into the close of a tenament building it has to be extracted into the open air.
Can anyone confirm this as i cant find any info.
Is this a building reg for existing installations as well as new ones?
Thanks.

Hi Iggy, welcome to Usenet. You might like to look at the information available on how to read newsgroups, and also look carefully at the dates on the things you are replying to. This is the only recent one! Andy

I lent what I thought might be useful to the threads for passersby...don't worry there's a few dozen more new and newer ones I've addressed. Usenet? I haven't been on that in decades, I'll have to look into it as I'm accessing these questions via Home Owners Hub's website.

Yes, I noticed :P
They're leeching content off usenet, and posting it back onto their web site, complete with adverts. There have been a _lot_ of _really_old threads posted back to uk.d-i-y with no context at all, some of them up to 15 years old. Apparently they pick a thread at random, and highlight it... uk.d-i-y is far more active than this group, but does tend to go off topic. But there are some people there who _really_ know their stuff.

As far as I've seen, no internet search engine returns usenet content...don't promote or discuss usenet are still rules, right. You've had real spot-on answers, you should want the right information out there combatting the nonsense.

That's really too bad, but keep in mind that Environmental Health is only answering based on what they oversee and won't suggest any remedies or other Departments. There are most definitely Nuisance Laws and Building Code Laws. Your next attempts should be at the Police and the Building Department.

If, as I presume you asked the Landlord to address the situation and even the other tenant to use a window, charcoal filter or to consider you in some other way. For example, would they let you attach a flexible Clothes Dryer Vent Tube and direct the offense outdoors or let you hire and even pay for a Contractor to remedy the situation properly? You'll have to move out if the answer's no everywhere.

The Police may respond with _"that's Civil not Criminal". _This means they aren't interested in doing their job, since it doesn't make them money nor get them on the news. I hope you don't get that response and wish you the best of luck in getting healthy living conditions again. Come back anytime with your progress in this situation or with any other questions.
