Appraisal reviews "should verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the method by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. In addition, they "must show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some banks supplement periodic reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their high-risk or greater-value transactions as a way to aid in uncovering valuation disputes."
