As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "have to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality." Moreover, they "must indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the scope of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions augment routine reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for some of their high-liability or high-value dealings as a control to aid in revealing 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 normally used for review services, and we will produce an appraisal review on any one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form.
