As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "ought to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality." In addition, they "should show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some financial institutions add typical reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their high-liability or high-value dealings as a method to assist in identifying valuation disputes."
