since there is a time limitation to this credit, it would be better to claim it in 2014 after you have complied with this limitation if you claimed it in 2013 and did not comply you would have to amend the 2013 return and pay back what you were allowed to reduce your taxes

No. Simply because you had no legal obligation to pay it in 2013 as the move and resultant debt did not occur until 2014. Tax deductions ARE cash basis BUT the debt has to be real when paid.
