Sending money from UK to Turkey

Hi all.
This is my first time on a forum, so please forgive me if I'm doing something wrong. 
I live and work in Turkey,  having moved here from the UK some fifteen years ago. 
I have some money due via inheritance from the UK. 
The money will be sent in GBP to my GBP account here from the lawyer's account. The lawyer is being a bit intransigent regarding which bank etc so I can't work out the costs of the transaction. 
Does anyone have any idea regarding the normal fees banks charge for sending money abroad? I know what the Turkish bank will charge and it's not a lot, but I have no idea what charges will be made by the bank in UK. It will be sterling to sterling, so no currency conversion. 
Can anyone advise? 
Many thanks.

    so are you saying you don't have a UK bank account? Cause if you did, I would think you would get it transferred to there, then use something like WISE - I use them a lot - but have a UK bank account.
