Transfer team ownership after someone left the company

Is there a way to manually transfer ownership of a team/project after that member has left the company. We may be able to get access to their figma login, but ideally there should be a way to manually override within Figma?

Are you on Figma Organization?

No we are on a starter team, part of this task is to look into upgrading to the Professional tier.

In this case how could such manual override even work? The owner is the owner, they can transfer the team if they want, but nobody else can do it for them. The accounts are not attached to a specific company unless you are on the Organization plan. So if you have access to their account, you can change team ownership only from there.
