We are in transition now between the old Places edit screen and the new one with the one button + Page create, for a + Local Business page which is functionally linked to a Places entry.
If you created a non-Local Brand or Company Page some time ago it cannot be made into a new + Local Business page.
If you made a + Local Business page and did not verify for a service area business with the address hidden in Places, or have a full address one then it has to be merged by Google with a new empty + Local Business page which is a new one. Either you created from the new Places edit screen or Google have recently made for you.
Where you have the old Places entry in Pending Review, have a 404 error, or edits are not showing up in search its time to abandon it.
* Edit *
You cannot now claim a Verified Places entry directly.
If the old one is in a gmail account first reduce it to:
Primary Phone no
One default Google Category
Once that shows in a Maps search Delete the old Places entry.
Make a new email and a new + Profile to manage you Pages and Places entry in. The Profile must be in a persons name, does not show when managing a Page or Places entry.
Make a new Places account and Places entry and PIN verify.
Make no edits unless forced to.
Once Pin verified Delete the old Places entry.
If no + Local Business page has been made for you then add one from the + Page button in the new Places Edit screen.
If you have a + Local Business page with significant content then add the new Profile as a manager. After a couple of weeks make it the owner. After a couple of weeks delete the Page form the old manager.
I would have email recovery set up for the Owner email, or keep the access details safe. Also add other managers to ensure access.
Amazingly if you lose access to the Owner of a Page Google cannot transfer it.
Once the old Page is safely under the new Profile ask Google to merge it with the new empty + Local Business page, the ONLY one to move forward with.
