Lemma 35.20.10. The property $\mathcal{P}(f) =$“$f$ is locally of finite type” is fpqc local on the base.

**Proof.**
Being locally of finite type is preserved under base change, see Morphisms, Lemma 29.15.4. Being locally of finite type is Zariski local on the base, see Morphisms, Lemma 29.15.2. Finally, let $S' \to S$ be a flat surjective morphism of affine schemes, and let $f : X \to S$ be a morphism. Assume that the base change $f' : X' \to S'$ is locally of finite type. Let $U \subset X$ be an affine open. Then $U' = S' \times _ S U$ is affine and of finite type over $S'$. Write $S = \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(R)$, $S' = \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(R')$, $U = \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(A)$, and $U' = \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(A')$. We know that $R \to R'$ is faithfully flat, $A' = R' \otimes _ R A$ and $R' \to A'$ is of finite type. We have to show that $R \to A$ is of finite type. This is the result of Algebra, Lemma 10.125.1. It follows that $f$ is locally of finite type. Therefore Lemma 35.19.4 applies and we win.
