It is normal only to fit one air admittance valve on the toilet which is on the end of the main sewer run. So generally, each property is required to fit one vent stack regardless of how many toilets are fitted.

id say it depends on wether you run the two waste outlets from each toilet into one soil pipe or if you intend to run each waste outlet into the sewars direct
one soil pipe one vent
two individual soil pipes then two vents
