Appraisal reviews "must verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the manners by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "should show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which gives an account of the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some institutions supplement routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their high-risk or large-value transactions as a method to assist in detecting valuation dilemmas."
