According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality." In addition, they "must signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the engagement letter, which describes the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some institutions augment typical reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or larger-value contracts as a means to help in discovering valuation concerns."

In addition to conforming our work to the practices and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are typically used for review services, and we can produce an appraisal review on any of them.
