I would suggest the need for a general policy on conflicts between members and 
in the community. In a condominium if the person who moves out still owns all 
or part of the unit, they can't be barred from homeowners meetings. Roommates 
can cause equal problems by refusing to move out.

I think it is too complicated to try to write a policy for any specific problem 
but easier to have a conflict resolution process that can be initiated by any 
member of the community for any reason.
