She will receive periodical payments every month, will this be considered as a regular income to meet the monthly mortgage payments? Thank you.

I think you will struggle to get a mortgage based on the periodical payments, that said are they drawn up by the court and regulated by a governing body?

How much is she looking to borrow and what is the value of property?

The periodical payments will be drawn up by the court.
She would be looking at a borrowing approx £80,000 - £100,000, as she will also receive a lump sum towards a deposit to a property of £100,000.

This is likely to be tight, as her income without the periodical payment will be circa £10,000. She will be trying to achieve 8 x income, which is unlikely.

Ok, we need to have re-think, thank you for your replies.
