is it safe to photo copy my passport details to him or his solicitor?

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 3 years ago.
Yes, as long as you are comfortable doing this and can be sure that he or his solicitor will not misuse the copy of your passport, otherwise you may just give him the passport number and a copy of your birth certificate which is a public document anyway and can be obtained from the General Register Office by anyone.
Hope this helps
