The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "have to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the methods by which the collateral valuation is accomplished guarantees independence and quality." Moreover, they "should denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the engagement letter, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some banks reinforce periodic reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-liability or greater-value dealings as a means to help in exposing valuation disputes."

In addition to adapting our work to the practices and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are widely used for review services, and we'll develop an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. Here at ASSOCIATES APPRAISAL, we are experienced in every kind of appraisal review, review procedure and the obligations of review appraisers.
