Since you could have a void down to the footing, it could be a structural problem, even in a shallow footing with a crawl space. Too bad you did not have the advantage of a permit and good inspection. - Are there any footings? Obviously there is no reinforcement.

Who hired the concrete contractor for the modular? - You or the home supplier. If it was the supplier, you will have more leverage than if you hired the contractor since it then is ultimately is your responsibility.

You see a lot of this stuff on poured foundations. Too many people pour or dump concrete to just fill up the forms. Usually they are patched immediately and the contractors usually learn where the major errors are. - That is IF they do more than one or two jobs and have to be responsible for the lack of knowledge and control.

Looks like a DIY job at best.

Windows and corners are biggest problem areas in addition to the concrete on the footing.

The concrete was not too thick. The concrete did not have the vibration to properly place and consolidate the concrete. The rest of the concrete also is probably not consolidated and placed properly. At lest there was son reinforcement even if does no good where it is important.

Too bad there was not the opportunity to have the concrete placement and results that should have been available with a permit.

Obviously, there is no excuse for the misalignment of the walls, but the modular home supplier has probably got a lot of tricks to make it works, but a stick-built contractor would never accept that kind of foundation variation.

You did not post where you are from, so or is hard to tell if footings were required or you if could get away with uninspected, unformed footings with the foundation wall on top.
