I have been told that it is part of the building regs that I have to have a fan in my bathroom even though I have windows. Is this correct?

Remember that Building Regs apply to new build; if a building met the Regs at the time it was built, there is generally no need to update to meet new regs.

Building Regs section F 1.5 gives the extraction requirement for bathrooms etc. ... F_2006.pdf

Bathroom extraction to prevent condensation etc can often be a good idea on its own merit rather than installing it to meet modern Regs.
