As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "ought to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is accomplished guarantees independence and quality." In addition, they "must signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some institutions add periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their high-risk or higher-value affairs as a method to assist in identifying valuation problems."
