Does a rental agreement need witnesses?

I recently signed a rental agreement for an apartment that I am moving into next month. I was not asked to have any witnesses present when I signed the agreement, so I am wondering if a rental agreement needs witnesses in order for it to be legally binding. I would like to make sure that the agreement is valid before I move in.

Witnesses are not generally required for rental agreements.
