Hi @rachel f


Please remind your agency of Googles Terms of Service : Google My Business Guidelines




Always respond to management access requests promptly, and always transfer listing ownership to the business owner immediately upon request. Authorised representatives must, whenever possible, encourage the business owner to create an account, own the listing and add authorised representatives as managers.


In the email, there should be an appeal link ?


Can you confirm?
