According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the method by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality." They "should also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions add periodic reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for some of their higher-liability or higher-value contracts as a method to assist in addressing valuation concerns."
