Exclamation Bathroom Moisture Help!

I am in the process of purchasing an apartment in which there is no exhaust fan in the bathroom. I don't beleive installing a vent from the bathroom to the outside will be allowed. I can see the previous owner has had problems with paint peeling and mildew. They have put a plastic barrier over the old ceiling and installed a drop ceiling which is sure to get mildew/mold very quickly.
1) Is there anything I can use on the ceiling such as special tiles or materials?
2)Can anyone offer an alternative to an exhaust fan vented to the exterior of the building?

Bathroom exhaust fans are a must. You can use most any product inside but unless you get that moisture out, anything that will allow for mold and mildew to grow, will!

Best to ask if you can install a fan. Next best thing is to be prepared to do frequent cleaning.

Hope this helps!
