You're right and I do this is not common, however there is a special case where the repos need to be shared with multiple users.

I'll update as you suggested.

So, I have set umask 002 and it works for all files except on .svn/wc.db - maybe I'm wrong and this is not a SVN problem.

Again, I know this is unusual situation but is how we need to work.
