Lemma 69.5.15. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $Y$ be an algebraic space over $S$. Let $X = \mathop{\mathrm{lim}}\nolimits X_ i$ be a directed limit of algebraic spaces over $Y$ with affine transition morphisms. Assume

1. $Y$ quasi-compact and quasi-separated,

2. $X_ i$ quasi-compact and quasi-separated,

3. the transition morphisms $X_{i'} \to X_ i$ are finite,

4. $X_ i \to Y$ locally of finite type

5. $X \to Y$ integral.

Then $X_ i \to Y$ is finite for $i$ large enough.

Proof. Choose an affine scheme $W$ and a surjective étale morphism $W \to Y$. Then $X \times _ Y W$ is finite over $W$ and it suffices to check that $X_ i \times _ Y W$ is finite over $W$ for some $i$ (Morphisms of Spaces, Lemma 66.45.3). By Lemma 69.5.11 this reduces us to the case of schemes. In the case of schemes it follows from Limits, Lemma 32.4.19. $\square$
