Appraisal Reviews

As said in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers fulfilling reviews have to "have the knowledge and skillfulness to determine compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines."

Appraisal reviews "ought to find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the methods by which the collateral valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. In addition, they "must announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions augment routine reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for any of their high-liability or large-value affairs as a way to help in addressing valuation problems."
