As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the manners by which the collateral valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality." Moreover, they "should show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some financial institutions augment regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for any of their higher-risk or greater-value transactions as a channel to help in detecting valuation problems."
