They "must also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which describes the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some banks add periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-risk or large-value affairs as a method to aid in detecting valuation disputes."
