Proposition 76.12.11. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of algebraic spaces over $S$ which is separated and locally of finite type. Then $(X/Y)_{fin}$ is an algebraic space. Moreover, the morphism $(X/Y)_{fin} \to Y$ is étale.

Proof. By Lemma 76.12.3 we may replace $X$ by the open subscheme which is locally quasi-finite over $Y$. Hence we may assume that $f$ is separated and locally quasi-finite. We will check the three conditions of Spaces, Definition 62.6.1. Condition (1) follows from Lemma 76.12.1. Condition (2) follows from Lemma 76.12.7. Finally, condition (3) follows from Lemma 76.12.10. Thus $(X/Y)_{fin}$ is an algebraic space. Moreover, that lemma shows that there exists a commutative diagram

\[ \xymatrix{ U \ar[rr] \ar[rd] & & (X/Y)_{fin} \ar[ld] \\ & Y } \]

with horizontal arrow surjective and étale and south-east arrow étale. By Properties of Spaces, Lemma 63.16.3 this implies that the south-west arrow is étale as well. $\square$
