I have a different problem. Is it a bedroom (no loft) if it doesn't have a closing door?

Yikes, get an attorney to help you find a way out. You must tell your landlord, hopefully you let him/her know in writing?

Robert Armacost answered:
If windows are present then the only issue is the fact that they don't open, simply ask that they be replaced, it is a fire code violation no matter what part of the country your in. The minimum opening height shall be 24" and the minimum opening width at 20" with the sill no more than 44" from finished floor, according to the 06' international code council.
Call your local building department for size requirements in your area, could be if the windows size is in compliance for the year the building was built then the owner will only be required to replace fixed pane windows with ones that will open.
Hope this helps
