You can but only try to see if the landlord will accept either of them as a
guarantor. It does not look likely though as:
1. Your current house sharer would have to be in position to be able to pay
the rent on his current dwelling as well as the rent on your new dwelling
should you default or if there is a rent shortfall .
and
2. The new potential landlord would have immense difficulties in enforcing
payment of the rent from a guarantor outside the uk

As I mentioned though you can but try. Best of luck

Have you had a good read of both your own and your mum's council websites
about rent guarantee schemes?
- I don't want to get your hope up too much, but it is worth a look as there
are varying local schemes to help people get places.
Landlords are variable, some like benefit claimants and some don't - some
will be pleased if your Pre Tenancy Determination shows the max rent
payable - if you are on IS then this is likely to be the actual amount paid.

I know someone who had a buy to let mortgage. His tenant was on benefit
and for some reason the benefit was suspended leaving him with no
income coming in. The benefit was restored but he ( the landlord) did
say he would not have a tenant on benefit again.
On the other hand I know of a couple who rent a flat out to someone on
incapaicity benefit and it suite them. She ( the tenant) is not likley
to move out for a long time so they ( the landlords) have a steady
income.
