And that's why Westpac is my day to day bank. No issue at all increasing my limit to move money to our loan offset (different bank). ANZ on the other…

With my usual bank you call and increase the limit, make the transfer, then decrease it again, so its not such an issue. This bank will only let you do…

Maybe worth going higher then (office, admin?) to see what is going on. Doesnt seem appropriate to change it on the day.

Admin is generally slow and messy. They also have a tendency to send things right before 5 on a Friday.

Have they given you an estimated completion?

Yes colorbond is an upgrade. It's better than tiles, more secure, less prone to leaks etc. No chance of broken tiles.

M are unlikely to start the preconstruction process until finance is in place so you might still be waiting a few months to start.

Have you settled on your land? We took about 14 weeks from settlement to start.
