Appraisal reviews "have to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the process by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. In addition, they "must announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which describes the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions supplement periodic reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their high-risk or large-value transactions as a channel to help in identifying valuation dilemmas."
