The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "ought to find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the process by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality." In addition, they "must denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions supplement typical reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for any of their high-risk or higher-value dealings as a way to assist in discovering valuation complications."
