Hi just wondering if anyone can help!  I have recently bought a business and deleted their google business page as we are an entirely new business and setup my own google business account but the reviews and photos have followed my new page.  Is there a way to remove both the reviews and photos?

Your help would be greatly appreciated

If you buy an existing business at a location you are buying its 'goodwill' as well.

 

Before you buy a business you really should do 'due diligence' first to establish the positive or negative value of its goodwill. You cannot expect to benefit from positive goodwill and escape its badwill.

 

As you are running a business at the same location as the old one and in the same Category Google will regard the old reviews as yours.

 

You can make one self-review for the locations new business saying its under new management. If you have traded before and had goodwill then you can say that.
