leave or replace non opening window?
I have had a house for 4 years in which the front room window has no opening whatsoever. The pvc windows were good quality from perhaps 15 years ago. When I did the house up I left the window in place. I imagine the original decision was for security reasons (tough area).
My current tenant has asked for more ventilation.
There is a vent into the chimney and the front door but not opening light in the window.
As far as I can see Buiding Regs only apply if /when I replace the windows.
Ventilation is not mentioned on RLA risk assessment.
A conditions audit under selective licensing for a different house asks "can the window be opened and closed easily".
I could fit trickle vents onto the existing window (there are none)= small improvement.
Should I really replace the window with one that has an opening light?
What do you think?
