Opened new business at a location that was previously owned by someone else - how to update?

Hi, 

 

We opened a new business and confirmed it in Google My Business:

Klinic Cannabis Club
55 Calle Princesa Ico
35509 Playa Honda
Lanzarote

Phone: +34 928 60 70 54

Google Maps: https://goo.gl/PxSJwN

Web: https://www.kliniccannabisclub.com

 

Now in the Google Search Results there is still the old business of a previous owner appearing and we need to get rid of it as it has nothing to do with our business but appears in the same address - but we took this business over and have no access to the previous account. 

Here the old business in the same location as our current business: https://goo.gl/ZBEneF

 

Thanks for your help

Hi @Sven G - When I clicked on the current business link you provided it shows as being closed - not knowing when it was marked as closed it can take awhile for Google to remove it completely. When I searched for your business "Klinic Cannabis Club 55 Calle Princesa Ico 35509 Playa Honda Lanzarote" the local listing came up in the SERP (Search Engine Results Page).

Yes, it is closed as I suggested to Google that it was closed for good. So I guess as our business in this same address is confirmed Google will probably close the other business - sooner or later - thanks
