The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "ought to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the actions by which the collateral valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality." They "must also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which describes the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some institutions augment regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their higher-liability or larger-value contracts as a channel to aid in discovering valuation complications."
