Appraisal reviews "ought to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. In addition, they "must signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which sets forth the extent of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some banks add typical reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or high-value transactions as a means to aid in exposing valuation issues."
