Transfer ownership of a location

To transfer ownership of an entire account, please follow these steps.

Only the owner of a location can transfer ownership rights. If you don't have any managers, you must first invite the new owner to become a manager, then wait for them to accept their invitation.

To change who owns a location:

  1. Sign in to Google My Business
  2. Click on the location from the location list.
  3. Click Add managers.
  4. In the window that appears, scroll to the name of the user you’d like to transfer ownership to. 
  5. Click the box on the right-hand side of their name, then select Owner from the dropdown menu that appears. 
  6. Click Done.

When you transfer ownership to someone else, you will automatically become a manager of the location. The transfer of ownership happens immediately--no confirmation is necessary from the new owner.

Tip: If your organization expects to receive lots of requests to manage locations, you may want to set up an internal process to collect the names and locations of these managers and add them in a single session rather than responding to requests as you receive them.
