Present Perfect Subjunctive  

Subjunctive Mood Present Perfect Subjunctive
Overview

The present perfect subjunctive is formed using the formula:
present subjunctive conjugation of haber + the past participle = present perfect subjunctive

Below is the present subjunctive conjugation of the helping verb haber with the past participle of hablar (to speak)

yo haya hablado
hayas hablado
Ud./él/ella haya hablado
nosotros (as) hayamos hablado
vosotros (as) hayáis hablado
Uds./ellos/ ellas hayan hablado

There are two possible English translations for the present perfect subjunctive:

haya hablado - I spoke (or) I have spoken

hayas hablado - you spoke (or) you have spoken

hayamos hablado - we spoke (or) we have spoken

The present perfect subjunctive is used in the same types of clauses as the present subjunctive, and normally is used: to indicate the action as completed with governing verbs in the present or future tense or command forms. Let's look at some example sentences:

Lamento que el producto no haya cumplido con sus estándares.
I apologize that the product was not up to your standards.

Lamentamos que haya tenido problemas con el producto.
We are sorry you had a problem with the product.

Estás contento de que haya llegado.
You are content that he has arrived.
