Appraisal reviews "ought to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. In addition, they "should show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some institutions augment typical reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their high-risk or high-value affairs as a way to aid in uncovering valuation disputes."
