Let it alter heading (5)


I believe the answer is:


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

'let it alter' is the wordplay.
'alter' indicates an anagram.
'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.
