You can use "Have had" in one sentence, but I am not sure of using "had have"
eg:-
Will you have had permanent residence status for 24 months or more when you start studying?:Yes / No
What I think is that:
Incorrect use: "If I had have known, I would have done XYZ"
Correct use: Had I have known, I would have done XYZ."

No. They are both wrong.

If I had known, ...
Had I known, ...

is have had a contraction. also is have been? write back soon!
How about this one that makes my students' eyes cross:

"Had I not have had to have had the [operation], I wouldn't have had to have had the [anaesthetic]."

I use this (somewhat incorrect, anyway) example to show my students the complications with the present perfect!

Anonymousis Is "have had" a contraction? also Also is "have been"?
No. Neither is a contraction. Contractions have apostrophes: can't, don't, isn't, I'm, they're, ...

dunno bout had have, but have had is more than correct ... for example; everybody would have had an eye infection , if they wouln´t have taken the appropriate measures on time ....

i used it in a sentence ... i am mexican and live in mexico , wtf is wrong with u guys ...

or
...... correct me if i´m wrong ....
Clive, have had is a verb transitive. We use the present perfect tense when we want to connect the present with the (recent) past in some way and this will appear as has had or have had in full forms or as 's had or 've had in contracted forms. For example: They've had a glass of orange juice, but they haven't had anything to eat yet.

Hi,

Yes, thanks, I know. But the question was about 'had have', not 'have had'.
