How do I Unclaim a set of verified business listings without deleting them entirely?

I recently separated from a company that I used to own and still have 6 of their locations verified and claimed under my google account. I need to unclaim these listings but I do not want to delete them entirely, just make it easier for the rightful owners to claim them, and get them off my account. I do not want to transfer these listings, just get them disassociated with my account.

The proper way to do this is to add their Google Account as the Primary Owner. 

 

Once they accept the locations you can safely remove them from your business.google.com account.

 

If you do not do it this way then the company you worked for will not have any access and will need to claim them all.
