Just bought an existing business, how to delete previous reviews?

Hi,

 

I just bought an existing business and I would like to delete all previous Google Plus reviews as none of the previous staff or management still work there. How would I go about doing that?

@Pharmer

You can't delete them

There are two options:

 

Report the old business as closed and create for your business a new business page.

 

Or (in case you are managing the business in your dashboard): try contacting business support:
