Appraisal reviews "should determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. They "should also denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the scope of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some banks reinforce periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-risk or large-value affairs as a way to aid in revealing valuation complications."
