Appraisal reviews "have to conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "should denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some banks supplement regular reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-risk or large-value contracts as a way to assist in identifying valuation concerns."
