Hi Dave, sorry to hear of your difficult situation.
Whilst things may be awkward between you both as parents each of you have a duty of care to your daughter which includes informing the other parent of her whereabouts at all times (what if something were to happen to you & you needed to let her mother know, you can't if you don't have her details).
I respect that you may disapprove of your ex's choice of where she now lives & whom she is introducing your daughter too but sadly denying her access rights to your daughter at present will only make things harder down the road (if you can prove you've been a cooperative parent showing the better interests of your daughter seeing both her parents it comes across better than a parent keeping child at home).
Your ex may well be aware you are considering custody applications which may be why she is not providing an address (solicitors can't contact her without it) so you will need to work on assuring her that you need the details to ensure your daughter's needs are met (in case of emergency as previous mentioned).
The only other thing I could suggest would be the pair of you talking things through with a mediator. It is something you would need to convince her was a good idea but the two of you having a chance to air you views in front of an independant 3rd party & agreeing on how to move on will benefit both of you. Best wishes.
