My business closing a location - Transfer Google Place to new business owner?

My business is closing 2 locations which are being taken over by a new, unrelated business entity. They are asking me to transfer those two Google Place pages to them. My first instinct is to close our pages and they will have to start new ones of their own... or can those pages be transferred? Thanks!

you can and should transfer the listings to them if they continue the business jsut under an other owner.

Means: if your closed location is -lets say-  a law firm or a restaurant and the new bsuiness is going to run at the same location again a law firm or a restaurant (even under an other name) you can transfer them the listing.

But supposed your closed location was a beauty salon and the new business is a plumber you shouldn't transfer the ownership.
