Appraisal reviews "should verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "should demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions supplement typical reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for any of their higher-liability or higher-value contracts as a means to aid in exposing valuation problems."
