The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "ought to verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the procedure by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality." They "should also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some banks reinforce periodic reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their high-liability or higher-value affairs as a way to help in identifying valuation complications."

In addition to adjusting our work to the practices and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are largely used for review services, and we can develop an appraisal review on any of them.
