Appraisal reviews "should decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. In addition, they "should indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some banks reinforce periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their high-liability or greater-value contracts as a control to help in discovering valuation complications."
