Hello,

We had people renting a room at our place and they registered a business at out home (Poland, they don't check anything unfortunately). Now I want it gone from google maps.

 

The business is House of Maids registered at ul. Wójtowska 30, Poznań, Poland.

 

Shall you need a proof that I am the actual owner please email me.

nobody will mail you about :the verified listing "House of maids Firma sprzątająca"

 

But sinceit is a verified listing its not that easy to get it removed.

You mentioend being the "owner"

 

Owner of what? 

Of "House of maids Firma sprzątająca" or of the buidling at the address?

Note a verified listing is verified because somebody received a PIN for the bsuienss sent by Google to  the address and entered it in his dahsboard.

Such businesses can't just removed.

 

 

 

Do you have any proof its a spammy business and never existed at your address?

We are the owners of the building. Since the people were renting a room, they had were able to pick up their mail in their name. It's not like I had the right to go through their mail. I guess you google could mail me another pin or something do I could be verified as the owner of the building.

P.S. It's a regular residential address

sorry @Ap A

 

there is a misunderstanding on your end.

GooglemyBusiness isn't about owing houses or showing who owns a house.

It's about business listings.

 

The listing in question and its website shows the address - this is possible if the rented  from you an office room in oyur house.

 

But even if they didn't run their business from oyur house you cant expect getting control over the listing as it isn't your business.

 

In case the business isn't anymore running from oyur address report it as closed or moved to elsewhere.

But be aware this:

on their website there is still your address published.

 

If this infromation on their website is wrong and misleading hire an laywer to enforce them to  take down your address from their website and to mark their business at oyur address as permantely closed.
