Transfer ownership of a location

Upgraded users can transfer ownership of specific locations. To transfer ownership of an entire account, please follow the steps outlined here.

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

The person you transfer ownership to must be an existing manager of the page for at least one day.

To change who owns a page:

  1. Visit Google My Business Locations
  2. Click on the location from the location list.
  3. Click Add managers.
  4. Click the dropdown arrow on the card of the person and select Transfer ownership to _name of user_.

When an owner transfers ownership to someone else, the old owner automatically becomes a manager of the page. The transfer of ownership happens immediately--no confirmation is necessary from the new owner.

Switching ownership of the page does not switch the ownership of other Google services linked to the page.
