Friend accidentally sent money as a Payment for Service, now PayPal thinks I'm a business?

Long story short, I am booking a holiday and had my friends send me money on PayPal to pay for it. I sent them my PayPal.me link. One of my friends, however, somehow misclicked (according to him) and the payment came through as a Payment for Service. The money was on hold, he confirmed it on his end, and there was a £17 fee on the transaction (he sent £500). Now my account is limited (although it won't tell me what the limits are on the "View your accounts limit" page).

 

When I go to resolve, I am asked for a building number, street number and street name, then proof of evidence and proof of residence. I'm not sure what to do here as I am not a business.

 

Any help is appreciated.
