Let it alter heading (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

title

'heading' is the definition.
(I know that title is a type of heading)

'let it alter' is the wordplay.
'alter' indicates an anagram.
'let'+'it'='letit'
'letit' with letters rearranged gives 'TITLE'.

(Other definitions for title that I've seen before include "Name of book or lord" , "Name of book, picture or rank" , "Lord, sir, doctor etc." , "Right - name - rank" , "Legal document regarding transfer of ownership: appellation" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
