Rema Orach Chaim 135:1 permits one to move a sefer torah to be used in a jail as long as it placed there a day or two before it is used.

I have a recollection of a custom to require a plan to read from a sefer torah at least three times in a new 'temporary' location (e.g. a shivah house) in order to allow it to be moved there.

Does such a custom exist, and what is its source?

footnote 5

The sources in note 5 discuss this leniency. They include the aruch hashulchan orach chaim 135:32, shaarei efraim and igrot Moshe.
