I have 8 properties set for deletion or pending.

I unlinked Google Analytics, checked all the sites and always get a 404 response.

Yet somehow certain domain names are still in Google search or Cache.

Sorry if I'm way off here. Just need guidance.

    It sounds like you want to remove these sites from Google's index - not simply from Search Console (formerly "Webmaster Tools")? Google Search Console is primarily a tool for reporting tool - simply removing a property from Search Console will not do anything to remove the site from Google's index. – MrWhite Mar 12 '17 at 9:43

    @w3dk I just checked on my sites and they are all indeed gone! Even out of search. Checked all the tools and resources as well. – BriRealz Mar 12 '17 at 9:48
  • I'm closing this question because you indicate in the comments that the problem solved itself just by waiting. – Stephen Ostermiller Apr 15 '17 at 10:49
  • I re-opened this. It is still a problem? – Stephen Ostermiller Apr 17 '17 at 9:13

    So others could benefit from what you figured out maybe you could post what you figured out as an answer. – Chris Rutherfurd Apr 18 '17 at 3:36

To remove the properties from Google's index, you would first have to add the properties again in your Webmaster account, then go to each of the sites and request removal of the whole site.
