Hello Simon, here is a better solution for you:

 

Go to >> http://www.google.com/business/

The click >> Get onto Google ( Big Blue Top Right )

Enter the business name.>>

Select the Business

It will then say :

Someone else has already verified this listing

This listing has already been verified by another user. If you want to add this listing to your account, you can make a request that will be sent to the current verified user.

Request admin rights


Request the admin right >> you will need to write a message to the current "owner" of the local page

You need to go through this process. ( wait 7 days )

Now you can contact Google Business Support to regain ownership :
https://support.google.com/business/contactflow



Here's a few examples of how this process could go:

1. We look at the owner and see if they have been active recently - if not, we notify the user that we have unverified their page and ask them to contact us if this incorrect. Over 80% of these actually come back as mailer-demons and we immediately know the user is no longer active and can't transfer ownership, in which case we unverify them and let them know. In this case, we have an issue - unverifying a page means losing the views, posts and content that has been built by the current owner.

2. We reach out to the owner and they do respond and say "yes that'd be great, lets transfer ownership." We could help them through that process and also keep the views and social content provided by the previous owner (since they are giving that data to the new owner in the transfer).

3. If we reach out to the owner and they don't respond in 7 days, we will attempt to reach out a few times through different methods (email again, phone, website portal contact paths, etc) and give them another 7 days. If there is no response we will unverify the current owner and then ask the claimant to pin verify the page again - so that we can verify they are legit. Keep in mind the process takes awhile because we want to be sure the right owner is managing the page and to give the current owner a chance to reply.

 

Hope this help!
