Appraisal reviews "must decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is accomplished guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "must signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which sets forth the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions add typical reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their high-risk or higher-value dealings as a control to help in revealing valuation dilemmas."
