I received a job offer where they asked if it would be possible to start earlier than I want. I asked if it is fine if I start a bit later and they said it should be fine. Should I just wait to hear what they say about the start date or should I start when they want me to start?

I received a job offer

Which had a specific start date I assume.

Generally I've gotten a verbal offer contingent on a few things (background/credit/criminal check, HR approval, etc.) and that was when a start date was discussed.

Then the offer letter had the date we discussed.

I asked if it is fine if I start a bit later and they said it should be fine.

"It should be fine" isn't a phrase I would be okay hearing regarding a start date.

You need something in writing stating when you will start (email is fine if both your new manager and HR are on the email).
