Just bought a building in which the old business owner died.

My husband and I bought a building that used to house a funeral home.  We are using it as a rental hall.  I don't know how to make it so that when the address is searched; my business comes up instead of the funeral home.  I created a new My Business listing; I'm waiting for the postcard.  Is there anything else I need to do?

If you can find the Google My Business listing for the Funeral Home, then click on "suggest an edit" and mark it as "closed". That should do the trick.
