Appraisal reviews "ought to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. They "should also indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some institutions augment regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for any of their higher-risk or large-value dealings as a way to help in exposing valuation disputes."
