Are you asking as the manager/owner? If so then yes, negotiate the start of the lease. The tenant can move in any time after the start and might appreciate not having to do it all at once.

It's common that new tenants will move in at least 30 days out if they are required to give 30 days notice to their present landlord. You may want to offer a reduced rate for the first couple of weeks or so to motivate the tenant to begin moving in before their current lease commitment is over.
