Appraisal reviews "should find out 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 obtained ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. Moreover, they "must show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which gives an account of the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions add typical reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for any of their higher-liability or greater-value dealings as a method to aid in discovering valuation issues."
