One way to say «must have» is «il doit avoir». there are other constructions, however.

In fact, here is another construction «Cela a dû être terrible pour vous»

Bonjour Neil ! To express "must have + past participle" as in "must have done"..., you will use Le Passé Composé of "devoir" = "a dû + infinitive" "Ça a dû coûter cher." (It must have cost a lot) "Il a dû se sentir mal à l'aise. (He must have felt uneasy.) See: Conjugate voir, devoir, pouvoir, boire, croire, savoir, lire, taire (+ avoir) in Le Passé Composé (conversational past) I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
