Appraisal reviews "have to find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the methods by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "should also indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some institutions augment regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their high-risk or higher-value transactions as a method to help in revealing valuation issues."
