Qualified Appraisal Reviews by TLM Appraisal Services

As stated in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation program," and that appraisers completing reviews should "have the familiarity and skills to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." TLM Appraisal Services provides appraisal review services that are impartial, qualified, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

If you have questions regarding an appraisal, or if you need a real estate appraisal review, call TLM Appraisal Services today.

According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "have to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the method by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality." They "must also demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some banks reinforce typical reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or large-value transactions as a channel to assist in exposing valuation dilemmas."

In addition to tailoring our work to the procedures and guidelines of our review customers, 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.
