Are they using anything like Yext or Moz Local that could be preventing changes?
Can you check to make sure the new domain is crawled & indexed and that there are no warnings in Search Console? Also, check to make sure you're using the version that's indexed (http vs https etc). in SC reads:

Too soon?
Just got off the phone with GMB support. They had me replicate the issue so they could see the problem first hand. They are going to have to manually make the change on our behalf since the system refuses to accept it. The lady theorized that it *may* have to do with the 301 redirect tripping up their validation/verification systems. She didn't sound certain as to why.
I think that there would be no problem if make the website change in the GMB dash as an Owner anyway...
