Transfer ownership of locations in Google Maps (with unresponsive previous owner)

We recently bought an office location, and I need to take over their google listing. The person who created it will not give over their information. It isn't even verified. How do I fix this?

Hi,

 

I would like to apologize for the lack of reply to your help inquiry. The Google My Business community has recently implemented several improvements that we hope will allow the proper care of help tickets here.

 

Google My Business now offers a conflict resolution system, which can be found here: Automating Ownership Conflict for Individuals.

 

You can also request ownership, by following the instructions here: Google My Business Help -> Someone else verified my business.

 

If no response is received within 7 days, you will be able to request a code to verify and then take ownership of the listing.

 

Kind Regards,

 

James
