How did you learn this and what is the exact wording of the rumored prohibition?

We have it in our condo docs and I would recommend that every community have it. It isn't something you can always exercise (available funds, etc.) but it is the only way to protect yourself from a relationship gone bad (always have a prenup if property is involved!).
