Only that person working on that file and once the work is finished, commit and unlock the file for other user to work on. This Break lock on the repo browser option allows other user to take it before the unlock itself.

You cannot enforce anything from the client - someone can just use a
different client. You need to add server side hooks which only allow
named people to break locks. Take a look in the subversion book to
find out about repository hook scripts.
