Ok, I have Google+ verified page as Floor Sanding Kent, ang verified on local maps and Google my business, discovered another company has Google+ page as Floor Sanding Kent. Been on phone with screen share to Google two hours today they were not helpful as other page is a brand page! even though im verified they can use my trading name! So I may as well set up a Google + page for Google Faversham see how long it takes for them to remove it. They were very unhelpful and had no idea what i could do. 

My page: https://plus.google.com/102461537335731847377

 

Other Page using my trading name https://plus.google.com/116933969197351630282

are yo sure nobody else of oyur company and using any other account as for the verifies local listing https://plus.google.com/102461537335731847377 did create the brand page?

But despite of considering the support being helpful or not:
They are indeed not able to help you much about a brand page.

There are now IMHO just two (weak) options for you:

1# You can report the brand page to Google for "impersonating" your business
2# you can hire a laywer agaist the owner of the brandpage for using "Floor Sanding Kent" in case this is a protected /registered trademark"
