As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality." They "must also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the engagement letter, which describes the capacity of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some banks reinforce periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their high-risk or greater-value affairs as a channel to aid in revealing valuation disputes."
