Appraisal reviews "ought to find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is collected ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. Moreover, they "should show whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some financial institutions add regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-risk or large-value dealings as a method to assist in exposing valuation disputes."
