svnadmin create user permissions

Good afternoon,

sorry to post a message with a similar topic you had in the past (
but it seems a slightly different kind of problem, here.

When I execute svnadmin create repo, I get the following error:

svnadmin: Repository creation failed
svnadmin: Creating db lock file
svnadmin: Can't open file 'repo/locks/db.lock': Permission denied

However, I can see in my directory:

drwx------ 4 myuser mygroup 4096 Jun 16 14:12 efg-repo

It seems that repository (and its subdirs) has been created with my user as
owner. Strangely, I cannot perform chown or chmod on those files
(Permission denied).

Can you help me, please?

Thanks in advance.
