Appraisal reviews "have to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "should signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some banks supplement periodic reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their high-liability or high-value transactions as a channel to help in discovering valuation disputes."
