Appraisal reviews "ought to verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the method by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "should show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which describes the outlook of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some institutions add periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or greater-value dealings as a method to aid in detecting valuation disputes."
