Appraisal reviews "should figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the manners by which the collateral valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. They "must also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions add routine reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-risk or higher-value contracts as a means to aid in exposing valuation complications."
