Appraisal reviews "ought to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. They "must also indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also notes that "some financial institutions augment routine reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or higher-value transactions as a control to help in uncovering valuation disputes."

In addition to conforming our work to the forms and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are largely used for review services, and we can develop an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form.
