As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the methods by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality." They "must also demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the scope of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some banks add typical reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-liability or larger-value contracts as a channel to help in uncovering valuation concerns."

In addition to conforming our work to the forms and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are largely used for review services, and we'll develop an appraisal review on any of them.
