Appraisal reviews "have to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. Moreover, they "should signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some institutions add periodic reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-liability or larger-value transactions as a control to assist in identifying valuation dilemmas."
