Hello, I am an attorney and am happy to assist.

It is not uncommon for the transfer of property to take many weeks, so I would not worry just based on how many weeks have passed.

Did you have a closing and sign all the documents? Was there a deed put in your name?

No, I only have the quit deed that is in his name.
Expert:  KimberlyLaw replied 2 months ago.

Well it sounds like you already checked the registry of deeds to see if your deed was recorded. I would contact whoever the professional was who was handling the deed for you and get a copy, as well as find out the status of it being recorded.

You paid for the property so you won't have a problem getting this corrected legally if there is an issue or delay.
