Appraisal reviews "ought to conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. Moreover, they "should demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some banks supplement periodic reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for any of their higher-liability or greater-value affairs as a way to assist in detecting valuation concerns."
