Appraisal reviews "ought to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. They "should also denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some institutions augment periodic reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-liability or higher-value contracts as a method to help in discovering valuation complications."
