Net Margin Reduction



I would like to know why if i buy an option contract of US500 for example, and i sell option on US 500 and form a bull call spread; Instead i get margined by IG on both legs(long and short legs).

Also i even tried tried to buy one option and sell another on option on the same contract, expiry, strike and type(using force open) now my exposure is supposed to be net zero but on IG i am not only margined on one leg but instead margined on both legs of the trades. 

Lastly, i think same thing holds when i try to hold both short and long positions in the underlying US 500 contract.
