Hi, we have a listing on google places. We own the company but cannot access the listing as do not have either email or password any longer. Any help in right direction would be really appreciated as would simply like to remove it as no longer relevant! Thank you in advance.

you can't remove it.
Report it instead as permanently closed:

Hi Stuart,
Sometime it takes time to remove after reported. You can also recover your G+ page from Google team (if you don't have access). Steps:
1. Go to https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038177?hl=en and click on "Contact Us" at top right corner.
2. Choose "Ownership or access to my business" (if you are the owner)
3. Click on "Someone else owns or verified my business" and then choose "Request a Call"
4. After phone verification, you can easily get the ownership of your G+ page (https://plus.google.com/109417530724223736315) to your Google account.
5. After then, you can delete that page or change your address as per current location and verify.

Rajeev,

Thank you for your post which is very helpful for people seeking to recover ownership of their pages. Unfortunately, however deleting a local page will not delete it from the database - all it will do is mark the page as unverified, meaning the former owner will no longer be able to edit the page through the dashboard, or respond to reviews.

Hi Priya,

Thanks for the information. I would also prefer to change the business address. If we don't delete after claiming then it may confuse visitors that one business having 2 different address (1 verified & 1 unverified).
