According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the process by which the collateral valuation is accomplished guarantees independence and quality." They "must also indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some banks add typical reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their higher-liability or large-value affairs as a control to assist in addressing valuation disputes."
