As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality." They "should also denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the capacity of the appraisal assignment."
