Default Crack in basement wall


My new semi-detach home is closing in 14 days!

I went to check on the status today and noticed int he basement, on the wall that is shared with my neighbour, there is a huge crack in the concrete wall that goes from the floor to the ceiling.

Is this going to create a foundation issue? How should this be fixed? Does this typically happen with new homes? Should I be concerned?

In addition, should I say something to the builder now, or should I wait until my PDI so that it is documented for Tarion Warranty (which is 2 days before closing)?
