Appraisal reviews "have to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "must signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some banks reinforce regular reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-liability or greater-value transactions as a control to assist in revealing valuation complications."
