The Spanish conditional perfect tense is used to describe something that could have happened in the past but did not due to another event. In some cases it can also imply the probability that this event will happen eventually.

How To Use:
conditional perfect of "haber" + past participle of verb
Yo habría comido la comida pero mi perro lo comío antes. I would have eaten the food but my dog ate it first.

The following charts show the verb “endings” for all regular verbs in the Conditional Perfect Tense. You will notice that all uses of the conditional perfect use the verb haber.

Remember: these verb charts are only a tool to use while one is learning the language. In other words, one must eventually forget the verb chart and it must become second nature.

Personal Pronoun Ending Example (haber)
Yo -ía habría
Tu -ías habrías
El/Ella -ía habría
Nosotros -íamos habríamos
Vosotros -íais habíais
