As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the methods by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality." In addition, they "must denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some banks reinforce periodic reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-liability or greater-value contracts as a way to help in uncovering valuation issues."

In addition to adjusting our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are primarily used for review services, and we will formulate an appraisal review on any one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form.
