bathroom has no window


I bought a studio home and the only door inside is the bathroom and closet doors. Am I required to have a window in the bathroom?

No.

As long as there is a vent fan, you don't have to have a window. If the bathroom has a window, it does not need a vent fan.

So, no, you can't go back to the seller and try to get money out of them.

I've heard of studio apt's, but not a studio home.
What is that?

Basically a two room cabin, or garage turned into living quarters.

Venting to a soffit may allow moist air to return to the attic. Venting through a wall may result in ice on your wall, or, again, moist air getting into the attic. Vent up through the roof with a respectable fan and don't worry about "all the energy" you'll be pumping away. The moisture will hurt you far more than a few gallons per year, or kwh, or heating material/method. If the place happens to be super tight, you may well need a return air duct, too.
