How can I become primary owner of my business if the current owner is no longer with the business?
I am already a manager of our listings but I like to get ownership in order to manage and maintain future managers etc.

Hi Carl,
Please, follow this procedure to request ownership from the previous owner
Read the instructions on that help article on how to proceed if the current owner does not reply.

That will only tell me that I am already managing the business. Which is correct, but I need to become the owner of it too

Hi Carl,
If you cannot longer contact the previous owner of the listing so he/she can transfer primary ownership to you you would have to contact the GMB support team for assistance. You can use this form.
