The Bad News

In a worst case scenario for property managers, the process of evictions could take months before a tenant is removed.

Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the Housing Stability and Tenant Protection Act of 2019 into law on June 14th of 2019, with several key provisions affecting Upstate New York landlords with both commercial and residential leases.
Landlords can NO LONGER deliver Notices directly!
One key provision requires that 14 Day (or other length / term) Notice(s) be "Served" in same manner in which a Notice of Petition is "Served." A Property Manager may deliver an invoice, or a note indicating that they have not yet received rent due, but not a legal "Notice to Pay or Quit."
"Service" has specific meaning with regard to Legal Process.
"Parties to the action" cannot provide "Service."
Serving a legal "Notice to Pay or Quit" improperly can be a critical component of defense for a Tenant who claims they've been evicted illegally, and may expose both the Property Management Company to claims of Landlord Harassment. Using a Notice that hasn't been properly Served as the basis on which to request a Hearing may be construed as Filing a Fake Eviction Against the Tenant.
