Tocloft and List of Figures: Get rid of title and begin right at the top

I am using tocloft to create an List of Figures. Now I would like to get rid of title and the list of figure should begin right at the top after the chapter title. I know the following is not a minimal example, but it should be understandable.

In the preamble I have this:

\usepackage{tocloft}
\renewcommand{\cftfigpresnum}{Abb. }
%\setlength{\cftfignumwidth}{2cm}
\renewcommand\cftfigfont{\footnotesize}
\renewcommand{\cftfigdotsep}{\cftnodots}%punkte im abb. verzeichnis.
\cftpagenumbersoff{figure}
\setlength{\cftfigindent}{0pt}


And between begin and end

\begin{document}

% in between there are many figures...

\renewcommand\listfigurename{}
\chapter{Abbildungsnachweise}

It should begin here.

\listoffigures

\end{documen}

Instead of calling \listoffigures, use

\makeatletter
\@starttoc{lof}% Print List of Figures
\makeatother


directly, or remove the header construction suggested by tocloft:

{\makeatletter
\let\@cftmakeloftitle\relax
\listoffigures% Print List of Figures
\makeatother}


The latter (perhaps preferred) solution stems from the definition if \listoffigures in tocloft.sty (note the \@cftmakeloftitle that is not needed, since you're providing your own):

\renewcommand{\listoffigures}{%
\@cfttocstart
\par
\begingroup
\parindent\z@ \parskip\cftparskip
\@cftmakeloftitle
\if@cfttocbibind
\@cftdobiblof
\fi
\@starttoc{lof}%
\endgroup
\@cfttocfinish}
\fi
