Hi, we have recently purchased a rural property that has a property name when you search the address in Google maps. I want to change the property name to a new one or delete it all together. I have tried suggesting an edit numerous times and changing the  property name or deleting it. I get an email saying the updates are approved but when you search the adress it still comes up with the old property name. I have even tried setting up a business name through Google business and trying to have it changed that way but no luck. It still comes up with the old property name but shows there is a business also at this address. 
How can I delete the old property name and change it to a new one. 
Thanks for your help.

Hi David Toni,

Welcome to the Google Maps community.
What sort of legal standing does the old name have?  How about the new one you want to add?

In not sure if the original name has any legal standing and I'm not sure how to find out. The new name is merely what we would like ppl to see when they search the address instead of the old name as we are the new owners of the property. I would be happy to even have the old name deleted and just the addtrss show up when searched. Every time I type my home address into Google maps it comes up with the old property name and I hate it.
