Appraisal reviews "must conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate 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. They "should also demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some institutions supplement regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for any of their high-liability or greater-value transactions as a method to aid in revealing valuation complications."
