Appraisal reviews "must determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the actions by which the collateral valuation is collected ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "must signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which describes the capacity of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also notes that "some financial institutions reinforce periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-risk or high-value dealings as a means to aid in exposing valuation disputes."
