Hello, I am trying to claim ownership from a client's lost email address to another email address... 


Will it be easier to try to just get email reset with a new password? Or have it switched from one email to another?

If you don't get a response after 7 days, you might have the option to claim the listing yourself. Just sign in to Google My Business and look for a Claim or Verify button on your dashboard. (If you don't see an option to claim the listing, that means it's not eligible to be transferred.)
