Appraisal reviews "should decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. They "should also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment."
