Hi ladies and gents,
My brother in law just grabbed a small office for his new business he will be opening. I was trying to help him with his GMB setup.

I noticed when I searched his address an unclaimed business listing(not for his business) pops up for his address.

Would creating and verifying a page for his own business replace the unclaimed listing? Or will this prevent him from being able to verify it?

Yes Colan is right that will not be a problem for your brother-in-law’s business. There are many businesses sharing the same address but still they have verified GMB pages. As long as it is a different business with different phone #.

If the old business that appears when you search for that address on Google does not really exist, you can report it to Google Support.
