Here's the issue.

The seller should have to do the inspection, not the buyer.

We need to change the laws and make the homeowner a true partner in selling any home.

What are you asking?

Who are you trying to foreclose on?

If the bank is foreclosing on you, they don't need your husband's permission to foreclose.

It will be difficult to have a deed in lieu approved if you have surplus funds in an amount enough to buy a 2nd home. The bank is going to want more skin in the game for you to be release from your obligation. So, don't expect them to roll over...Banks don't approve DILs when there are junior liens that exist, but since you have a junior with the same lender that could be worked out - just not a guarantee they will approve. You may want to think about paying off the junior lien to have a better chance of getting the primary mortgage approved for a DIL...but they will not allow a DIL while paying off the 2nd on terms...must be removed completely or some other terms worked out.
Most times when you are approved for a DIL you are forgiven of the remaining deficiency amount but you will be is a gov't requirement. Now, you should speak to your cpa about IRS form 982 which needs to be filed to get a waiver for the taxes due on the forgiven amount...your cpa will evaluate your specific case and be able to determine if you qualify for the tax waiver.
You should speak with a foreclosure or bankruptcy attorney about the wage or pension garnish concerns...I hope things work out for you. Tom Hinz

It all depends on your situation, first question to answer is can I qualify to purchase another home without selling my current home?

Downwiththeho answered:
I rent in Trenton at present and recently moved out here from the East Village. (I'm a 37 yo male for context.) I've found that we NYC-transplants seem to arrive with more tolerance to live in a rough area, probably because even bad neighborhoods in NYC still command desirability.

Thus it was sort of unpleasant to discover that there are parts of Trenton that are definitely uncomfortable. Like uncomfortable in ways I haven't been in NYC since about 1995. The train station is not in a great area and walking home from it can feel sketchy. Mostly this is because you're passing through some poorly lit areas that are not designed with pedestrians in mind. Bus service is available although it will feel inefficient to wait for transport for traveling such a short distance. If you do need to commute to NYC regularly, Mill Hill is realistically the only desirable neighborhood with good proximity to the train station.

Most of the crime that drives Trenton's reputation is primarily gang related. This means that unless you're part of a gang there's relatively low risk of that affecting you. That said, Trenton does have a surprising amount of urban blight (ie depressing neighborhoods) as well as a shockingly-aggressive homeless population compared to what you can encounter in NYC.

If you are intent on Trenton, and willing to eject your requirement of walking home from the train station, then it's worth checking out areas that are closer to the capital building. I'm near the Wyndham Garden Hotel (formerly the Marriott) and find this spot to be pretty desirable and often overlooked. Getting to the train station is about a 15 min walk but bus service is pretty convenient and I can be at the train station inside of 5 minutes if things align.
