One of the most important things to know about hosting a house party is that as a
host you are accountable for what happens at your party. Underage drinking, illegal
drug use, fights, property damage—a host can be held legally liable for all of these,
even if he/she was not aware that it was happening at the time. Planning ahead is
the best way to decrease problems and your legal risk.
