Need to change ownership of a business

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I am trying to claim ownership of our business but I can't send the form because it says "Sorry we are having some issues at the moment". It has been like that since December last year. Google is only showing the first 2 letters of the email that has the ownership at the moment. We have no idea whose that email address is.


Full business name: Loimaan Kivi Oy

Current business address: Palininkatu 2, 32201 Loimaa, Finland

Current telephone number: 020 7909200

Google Maps URL:,23.0669384,15.92z/data=!4m18!1m12!4m11!1m3...



All the help is greatly appreciated. We would like to get the ownership of our business to this email address (loimaankivi and gmail dot com). What can we do?

Hi @Loimaan K


Just to clarify, when you click to request ownership, it gives you the error message.


Can you try one last time to request ownership, but screenshot the message please. can you also make a note of date and time you requested / took screenshot.


If its a bug it will help them to identify, but then I can also escalate you being unable to request ownership
