I think asmckenzie's suggestion was good, and I'd like to add that whenever anyone comes over, that they be aware of things to do or not to do and why.

It depends on the laws in your area. She is 18 she knows the difference between what is right and what is wrong, so she would be responsible! Also, if she pays rent-that totally takes the focus off you since she has legal standing in the house as well. Someone can always ASK you to pay for injuries on your property but then your insurance company would be there to help you fight the allegations.
Also, there are new disorders out there call "Impulse Control Disorder" one of them is labeled as "Intermittent Explosive Disorder" and basically means that she cannot control certain outbursts of behaviors-often clasified by violent outbursts that are disproportionate to the event that "set her off." If you have any concerns like this-call local law enforcement or your local mental health agency and they can help refer you to the help you and your daughter need!
