wrong council tax banding

After Money saving programme last week on tv  and checking the v.o.a.website  it turns out that my neighbours/landlords house ,which would have been exactly the same size in the nineties, is two bands lower than ours the only thing i can see that is different is that there house is classed as mixed use? i dont know if this makes a difference
none of the properties have been sold so cant find a value from them from then
Also who should register the difference us or our landlord , if we have been wrongly banded it will make a big difference as we have been here 20 years
Any help or advice would be appreciated

    Why would you post here far better to post in a relevant section Housing etc .
    Council Tax bands

    What do I do if I think my council tax band is wrong?
    This is done through the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). It might be able to change your band before you need to challenge, so get in touch with it first and explain why you think your band is wrongmake sure to include evidence. If you're unhappy with its decision, you can then formally challenge via its website.3 Nov 2020

    Selling price is not Council Tax banding , essentially all homes rated in 1991 as the basis .

    A mixed use house will have both council tax and business rates levied against it. The residential part will have been assessed for council tax and as it is less than your house will be a lower band. The other part will be assessed for business rates.
