Appraisal reviews "should verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the methods by which the collateral valuation is accomplished guarantees independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "must also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some institutions supplement regular reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or high-value transactions as a channel to assist in detecting valuation problems."
