Appraisal reviews "have to find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. In addition, they "must show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the letter of engagement, which describes the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions reinforce periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or large-value affairs as a means to aid in identifying valuation concerns."
