Hi, I have only one toilet in my house which is next to the back door. There is no radiator or other heater in it. Subsequently it is far below the 18 degrees that apparently it should be (I googled and 18 degrees is the recommended temperature… is that right?). There is also condensation building up. Do I have a right to ask my landlord to put a radiator in here?

It’s unlikely. 

Heating minimums regard only bedrooms and living rooms, so there is no legal leverage you can use. It’s up to you to convince the landlord that the investment is worth it, but quite frankly, how can you increase the property’s value when you put a radiator in the toilet ?
