Appraisal reviews "should determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. They "must also demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions supplement regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their higher-liability or greater-value transactions as a means to assist in uncovering valuation disputes."
