Appraisal reviews "have to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. They "should also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some financial institutions add periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-liability or large-value dealings as a control to help in uncovering valuation disputes."
