Who has verified my listing?!

We've just taken over a business and I'm trying to register a Gogle Plus page for it. However, when I go through to try and verify the listing on Google My Business it says the page has already been verified by somebody else.


I don't know who has verified it! The previous business owner is not very tech-savvy so doesn't think it was her, but somebody has responded to my request to transfer ownership, denying my request!


Is there any way of finding out the current email address the business has been registered by? Or any way of forcing the change of ownership through?

@Tom M


even in case the actual owner of the verified page denied your request for what ever reason:

There is a procedure provided by Google to get the page transferred  to your account:

Someone else verified my business


Applying it it should lead in disconnecting it from the former owners dashboard and unverifying it -  so you can claim and verify it for your own dashboard.
