Appraisal reviews "ought to conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the process by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. Moreover, they "should demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some financial institutions reinforce regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-risk or larger-value transactions as a way to assist in exposing valuation dilemmas."
