As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is accomplished guarantees independence and quality." They "should also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the scope of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some banks reinforce regular reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or larger-value contracts as a means to help in detecting valuation issues."

In addition to adapting our work to the procedures and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are usually used for review services, and we'll prepare an appraisal review on any one of them.
