Ownership Transfer 7 Day Process

This is awful. Why do we have to wait 7 days to call the business owner for a ownership transfer when you can clearly call their verified business listing number. Just doesnt make any sense to me I feel like you are pushing all of us out with all these awful updates on the business listings.

Can't see or consider it awful

They explain you here https://support.google.com/business/answer/4566671?hl=en that their procedure include a step Google will contact the actual page owner.
Shouldn't you allow to give them both time to react on their request?

I wonder if you can advise me on this:-

I look after a website for a friends business - fo the past 11 years I have had complete freedom to do whatever was needed with regards the website and its relationship with Google. During this I have simply opened accounts using my own email details.
Over the years as Google changed any account I opened ie YouTube - is linked to me account even though I used the company name.

OK, Now I am due to retire and the company want to manage the Google local page and have submitted a new ownership request to Google.

As the company local page is part of my account - how can I pass ownership of that page only and not give access to anything linked to the email or my account?
