Appraisal reviews "ought to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is accomplished guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. They "should also show whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some institutions augment regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their high-risk or greater-value transactions as a means to assist in uncovering valuation problems."
