Code for Outdoor fan wiring

I wired up an outdoor fan - proper sized exterior rated wire but not in conduit. I tapped off the exterior light using the indoor switch to control both. I'm about to sell the house and don't want to get into trouble with codes and what not. Does the wire have to be in condiut and does the connections need to be in a box outside?

Code for Outdoor fan wiring

If you don't want trouble, then specifically SAY that this piece is not up to code, and that you are willing to remove it if the new buyer requests.

I did that when I sold our last house...as long as you are upfront with everyone it's OK.
