Can't verify and publish a new Google My Business page as it is a duplicate location

Just registered for a Google My Business page to get local service details to come up and hadn't realised that it would also automatically produce a Google+ page as well.  We already had a Google+ page set up last year, but registered under a personal email rather than the business login that we now use.  Received the postcard and put the PIN in and got the message that it was a duplicate location and couldn't be published.


Now figured out that the original Google+ page is there as the same location, but under the personal email login.  Would we be correct in Deleting the first Google+ page location accessed under the personal email in order to free up the location for the most recent GMB and Google+ pages to become the only location and therefore usable immediately the 1st one is deleted?


Any thoughts on the subject would be appreciated.
