Merging Google + Brand and verified local business page

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I'm trying to merge a brand and local verified business page. Unfortunately, through a combination of a leaving employee and lack of follow-up, they are owned by separate accounts. How can I merge the two? I've went into the settings of the local business page and scrolled to the bottom to link an additional page but it says I don't own any other brand pages. Is there a way to perhaps transfer ownership of a page (brand in this case).

This is a good situation then and you can be lucky:
Using the below linked HC article you can achieve to get the ownership of the local page transferred to the account where you are managing the brand page:

Once this is done and both pages are owned & managed in your dashboard account you can connect them also:
This HC article https://support.google.com/business/answer/6010825?hl=en explains how to do the latter step.

This account owns the brand page. Another account owns the local page.
