Brand Account and GMB Listings

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Having major problems with a client that has changed their business name.


They have a Google+ page and a GMB Listing which were created 5+ years ago are both tied to a brand account. I have changed the business listing name successfully but they want to delete the Google+ page and rename the brand account.


There is no option to delete the Google+ page in settings and I can't rename it. Can't rename the brand account either. So I tried deleting the brand account as I read that GMB has been separated from brand accounts. However the GMB listing is removed when the brand account is deleted and reappears when its restored.


It seems accounts and listings before the divorce are broken. How can I separate the GMB from the brand account?
