    You can offer but it's up to them to accept or not.

    The issue of "turning over the keys" is you could owe almost as much after it is all done. There is all the late fees, cost of sale, perhaps advertising or auction.

    So they can go to court and get a judgement for the amount,

    So while they may accept an offer it would have to be enough to be considered in good faith.

    If they say you owe 50,000 and you offer 1000, it is doubtful they will take it seriously
