Default Basement conversion

Hi, I am interested in buying a Victorian terrace. The cellar was converted in 2008 to a high standard, it has been tanked, ventilation by way of ceiling fans, drainage and sump pump with backup and alarm, electrics. It has been used by the two previous owner as a games room/bar. The current owner has the building cert for the conversion. Although it has no window just one set of stairs in to the dining room, which is the only entrance/exit. As I understand under current building regs it must have a escape window or door to the outside. Could this effect me when it comes to the surveyor checking the house?
