Continued to pay rent on my apartment post purchasing a house

I purchased a house mid January 18 but had to continue paying rent on my apartment until June when lease expired.  Can I claim that on my return?

There is not a rent deduction or credit on your Federal return.  If your state has anything for renters you will be prompted to enter your rent info when you complete your state return.  As far as I know, the states that have anything for rent are Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wisconsin.
