Appraisal Reform for Reviews

Appraisal Reform has swept the nation with The Federal Reserve directing the broom at our local and national banks. These financial institutions now must have independent, effective appraisal and valuation programs. Furthermore appraisers performing reviews must have the expertise and knowledge to comply with the Federal Reserve’s appraisal guidelines and regulations as outlined in The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice as stipulated by the Appraisal Foundation. Durkin Valuation Associates provide appraisal review services that are professional, qualified, independent, and compliant with the 2012-2013 government guidelines.

Appraisal reform for reviews should determine the risk of the transaction, whether the process by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures quality and independence, and whether the appraisal or valuation is appropriate for the transaction, according to new banking guidelines. The scope of the appraisal assignment which is set forth in the engagement letter must be consistent with the valuation or appraisal report. The Federal Reserve comments that post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their greater-value transactions or higher-risk transactions as a control to assist in detecting valuation problems is used by some banks to augment routine appraisal reviews.
