As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality." They "should also show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some financial institutions reinforce routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-liability or greater-value transactions as a way to assist in revealing valuation disputes."
