According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality." In addition, they "should signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some institutions reinforce regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-liability or greater-value contracts as a means to aid in exposing valuation complications."

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